Robert sent me the log-file offline and what you (and me too -- I know why I
asked for the log-file ...) suspected is true:

He has some files from an outdated beamer version from 2007 in the document
folder.

Oh dear ... Embarrassing.  I checked the tex document folder.  Somehow an
old version of Beamer has indeed found its way into the same folder as the
tex file was in.  Thank you Ulrike for spotting this.  Many of us users are
just completely incompetent - our incompetence at least must amuse you when
you encounter it!!

Thank you again Ulrike.  Than you also Paul for the quick fix which got me
what I needed in the short term.

Cheers, Rob

Thank you for very much for the help.  But every file was downloaded by the
miktex downloader package from CTAN and I did the update and it said all
files were up to date so I am not sure how to solve that really ....

I don't think that it is incompetence. I'm quite sure that you have enough
knowledge to check file pathes in a log-file. Or to search in your system
for a "beamer.cls" file.

But you were quite in the grip of a prejudice. You were so sure that your
system is new and updated and the error must be the fault of miktex that you
didn't look in other places.

Hi Guys,
Using windows 10 (64 bit) and miktex 2.9.6069 (32 bit) Trying to compile a
file in directory: "c:\temp\~foo":
$ texify --pdf file.texThis is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16
(MiKTeX 2.9)entering extended mode! I can't find file `C:/Temp/'.<to be read
again>? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?\protect<*> C:/Temp/~? ? ? ? ? ?
?foo/file.texPlease type another input file name:


However, pdflatex finds the file properly.
Changing the directory name to just "foo": everything works fine.
Anyone have a workaround to this behavior?
Thanks!Doc

To: "[hidden email]"

Hello,
I am totally new to Latex and Miktex.? I downloaded Miktex ok, but I have to
add Revtex4.1 in order to submit an article to a journal.? There is a
'revtex4' option in the package manager but I have not tried that because I
am not sure if it is actually? version 4 or 4.1, and if it was 4, would I be
able to get it out of there later?.? So I downloaded 4.1 and managed to
unzip it (which was a struggle) into a folder under Miktex2.9 that I called
'revtex41'.? If I run the sample tex file that is several folders down in
the revtex41 folder, it works.? But if I copy that tex file somewhere else
(such as the desktop) and try to run it from there, it complains about not
having Revtex 4.1, in the following way:



So I tried adding my revtex41 folder to the path.? ? Not that I am sure that
doing that would fix the problem, but it was worth a try.? I used the
instructions that came along in the zip file:[1] In Miktex options go to the
'root' tab and add a path to the new folder, which I did.? Then I hit
'apply' as well. [2] Go to the 'general' tab and hit 'refresh FNDB' which I
did.But Miktex will not store that change.? When I go out of Miktex options
and back in, that path is not there.

I tried doing the install in the box shown above.? That didn't work either.I
would like to be able to put a tex file anywhere I want and have it run.?
Any suggestions for what I am doing wrong?
Thanks, Davewindows 10, 64 bit Miktex.?
