Installation of MiKTex 2.9 in Windows 7 Failed (Solved)

August 4, 2014

This is a quick post about solving MikTex 2.9 in Windows 7.

On the first try of the installation, two pop-up windows showed up, saying:”Windows API error 2. Cannot find the file specified…”. Then the installation program stopped.

To solve this, right click at setup program and select “Troubleshoot Compatibility”. Choose the recommended compatibility (Windows XP) and then run the setup program. The installation would run smoothly.
