My understanding is that tinytex's
install_prebuilt() command is supposed to help the unfortunate souls like me who work in an organization without enjoying administrative privileges. (I'm on Windows 7.)
When I try installing
tinytex with the above command, the first bump I encounter is a pop-up window that tells me that
texhash doesn't work "anymore":
After that, the script runs quite smoothly for a while; at the end I receive the following warning:
In download.file(url, output, ..., method = method) :
URL 'https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/yihui/tinytex/artifacts/TinyTeX.zip': status was 'Couldn't connect to server'
tinytex as such was installed:
tinytex:::is_tinytex() #>  TRUE
Now, whenever I try to knit a pdf document, I receive output such as this:
Output created: mydoc.pdf
Fehler in abs_path(output_file) : The file 'mydoc.pdf' does not exist.
Ruft auf: <Anonymous> -> abs_path
LaTeX Warning: Command \texteuro invalid in math mode on input line 281.
No TeX installation detected (TeX is required to create PDF output). You should install a recommended TeX distribution for your platform:
Windows: MiKTeX (Complete) ...
But from the command line, my system appears to recognise the installation:
pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.19 (TeX Live 2018/W32TeX)
kpathsea version 6.3.0
Could anyone help me with this? It'd be much appreciated!
