KOMA-Script, scrlttr2 | Compilation fails

Postby scitrx » Wed Jun 13, 2012 2:18 pm

Dear community,

I am quite new to LaTeX and TeXnicCenter. I'd like to use it for writing a letter, but I already fail on the document head and I don't know why.

The following document does not work:
  1. \documentclass{scrlttr2}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. Hello world!
  5. \end{document}

LaTeX does not compile the file (there is no PDF) and it says
[DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]. Command could not be executed.

Using "article" instead of "scrlttr2" the document compiles properly.

I already solved the problem. Apparently MiKTeX has problems with the option "Ask me first" for the option "Install missing packages on-the-fly". I chose "yes" instead and now the missing packages do get installed immediatly, which solved my problem. Thanks anyways. I hope this post does help people with a similar problems!
