* Orgmode and PDF export on Windows machine

Hi all,

since a couple of weeks I have this strange behaviour of orgmode:

When I try to export to PDF via Ctrl-c-e and then using »d« to export as
Latex, process PDF and open the PDF, orgmode begins the export process
and then stops somehow. I can export to LaTeX (l) und to a temporary
LaTeX buffer (L), and having a LaTeX buffer I can produce a PDF without
any problem, but I cannot use the »p« and the »d« key to produce PDF in
one step.

This happens since orgmode 6.27, and it happens also in 6.28b. My system
is a Windows XP machine using MikTeX als LaTeX-environment. MikTeX is
freshly updated and works well. Emacs is GNU Emacs 22.3.1.

Any hints and clues?

Best,

Uwe Jochum

I have the same problem on my machine

WinXP, emacs 22.2.1, org-mode 2.28b, MikTeX 2.6

I use c-c c-e d.

The mode line says:

 Processing LaTeX file ...

The .tex file is written, but not processed. The buffer with the proces output stays empty. When I open the .tex file and run it through pdftex the pdf is generated as expected.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

Org-mode uses

   pdflatex -interaction nonstopmode file.tex

file.tex is first passed through shell-quote-argument before
being inserted into the command.

Please check in Emacs what evaluating

     (shell-quote-argument "c:path\to\file")

gives you and then try to run the pdflatex command
from the command line.

I guess the problem must be that pdflatex does not exist as as command,
or that there is a problem with the quoting......

I'm still seeing this problem. pdflatex run as above generates the 
correct pdf file. Did anybody else find the solution?
