## YAP stop working after MikTex update

 I spend some weeks searching for potential answers for a similar problem without success. Meanwhile I posted this message in the TeX users group and was advised to send as a bug report. This happened after one of many MikTex updates I made but it is unclear to me the source of the problem. My yap.exe file has the date of 29 Oct'16, so this might give you some useful clue. I usually compile my documents to pdf and so I only use dvi and yap to do tests and quick debugging. In one such ocasion while opening the dvi with yap an error window open with the message "MiKTeX encountered an internal error." The report info is the following: MiKTeX Problem Report Message: MiKTeX encountered an internal error. Data: Source: Libraries\MiKTeX\Core\Session\mfmodes.cpp Line: 50 MiKTeX: 2.9 OS: Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, Service Pack 1, build 7601 Invokers: non-existing/explorer/TeXnicCenter SystemAdmin: yes PowerUser: no Root0: C:\Users\Myaccount\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9 Root1: C:\Users\Myaccount\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9 Root2: C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9 Root3: C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9 UserInstall: C:\Users\Myaccount\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9 UserConfig: C:\Users\Myaccount\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9 UserData: C:\Users\Myaccount\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9 CommonInstall: C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9 CommonConfig: C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9 CommonData: C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9 The problem is the same regardless if I compile a document within TeXnicCenter or just try to open a dvi file directly from a directory or even if I just double-click on yap.exe. I guess there is no problem in compiling to a dvi document, just opening it.

## Re: YAP stop working after MikTex update

 Thanks. It's really the same error. I cheked my package manager and the metafont package was not installed and once I put it back yap worked fine. On Tue, Dec 20, 2016 at 12:24 AM, George N.
