error when compiling PDF SWP5.5

Will Halliday's picture

try to compile (or preview or print) a PDF and get error within TrueTex DVI viewer : Run LaTex-PDG no such .ini section

SWP 5.5 build 2960 W7 64 bit

I'm a bit stuck at the moment. This problem cropped up after (re)installing fonts to the truetype directory though I don't think compiling PDF has ever worked on this installation. New installation

Any ideas?

Thanks
Will

One thing you could check is

One thing you could check is whether there is in fact a section like that. Look at [your swp installation, here assumed to be in c:\swp55] c:\swp55\tcitex\truetex\truetex.ini. In my version I find (at about line 200):

[LaTeX-PDG]
TABS=pdfLaTeX/Process
EXE="C:\swp55\TCITeX\web2c\pdfLaTeX.exe &pdflatex_ml"
TEXMF=C:\swp55\TCITeX
TEXMFCNF=C:\swp55\TCITeX/web2c
ARRANGE=maximize
FINISHMSG="[pdfLaTeX finished]"

Is this present in your version? Also, does your swp installation start in c:\swp55? If it's in a folder whose name contains spaces, then all sorts of things could go wrong. I'd be a bit surprised if it was a font issue, at least given this error message. I'm also running W7, 64-bit, so we know in principle that it can be made to work.
