If you don't mind me asking this question about latex:
Based on Duncan's comment:
"The print method for "latex" objects tries to run latex and then display the resulting .dvi file. (Or maybe it runs pdflatex and displays the .pdf file)."
Where in MikTex can I change to pdflatex? everytime I use latex it displays the dvi file which is a problem because tables that I want to see landscaped don't work. Thanks

latex(x) returns an object of class "latex". When

If you can't run latex, you can't
