PDF is not generated (LaTeX=>PS=>PDF) in TeXnicCenter

(often occurring problem with TUD-installation)

When using the build mode ‘Latex=>PS=>PDF’ and there is no PDF generated, but there is a .DVI-file and a .PS-file generated, TeXnicCenter is not able to convert a PS-file to a PDF-file. Likely, your build-settings are wrong.

  • Go to tab BUILD, then DEFINE OUTPUT PROFILES and select the profile “LaTeX=>PS=>PDF”.
  • Go to tab POSTPROCESSOR and click “Ghostscript (ps2pdf). In the Executable line write the location of ghostscript (e.g. C:\Program Files\GS\gs8.64\bin\gswin32c.exe). [if Ghostscript is not installed, first install it :)]

TeXnicCenter crashes when using JabRef

An annoying bug: when you have JabRef open and then start TeXnicCenter and try to run your code with a reference to your JabRef-database, TeXnicCenter crashes. I did not find any solution for it, but at least it helps to first open TeXnicCenter and then open JabRef. Don’t ask me why, but it often helps.

According to the bug-report it has to do with the link to your bib-file: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3042060&group_id=36323&atid=416430
