Beginner Intro to TeX/LaTeX/LyX – How to set it up in Windows 7/8.1

leave a comment »

One way to easily install LaTeX and the editor LyX in Windows:

  1. Install MiKTeX. Run the update wizard to get the latest updates.
  2. Add your favorite document classes (e.g., Elsevier journal articles) to the path C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\tex. [AppData does not appear in my pc because it’s hidden. Check by launching Windows Explorer then click on the View menu on the ribbon, now tick ‘Hidden items’.].
  3. Rehash by running texhash, or /miktex/bin/texhash.exe (on Windows this may be in C:\Programs).
  4. Install LyX. Click Tools > Reconfigure, and restart it.
