Hi everyone,

I've followed the conversation about the errors in rebuilding the vignettes. Thanks a lot for your effort on fixing it.

I get the following error on Windows / tokay2 which has not been fixed yet:


-- re-building 'vignette-hierinf.Rnw' using knitr

Warning in system(paste(shQuote(texi2dvi), if (quiet) "--quiet" else "", :

running command '"C:\PROGRA~1\MIKTEX~1.9\miktex\bin\x64\texify.exe" --quiet --pdf "vignette-hierinf.tex" --max-iterations=20 -I "C:/Users/biocbuild/bbs-3.11-bioc/R/share/texmf/tex/latex" -I "C:/Users/biocbuild/bbs-3.11-bioc/R/share/texmf/bibtex/bst"' had status 1

Error: processing vignette 'vignette-hierinf.Rnw' failed with diagnostics: running 'texi2dvi' on 'vignette-hierinf.tex' failed

LaTeX errors:

! LaTeX Error: File `.def' not found.

Type X to quit or to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: def)

I haven't changed my vignette lately and no error occurs using the win builder (https://win-builder.r-project.org/). Do you have any hints what's the problem or if I need to change our vignette?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Best wishes,
