Bibtex:GUI framework cannot be initialized

Hi guys! I guess you might face the same problem with me. I’m new to LaTex and I run my LaTex file this morning in my PC and simply got this error message : Bibtex:GUI framework cannot be initialized! Yesterday, I run a similar code using same installation procedure (I use MikTex 2.9 and WinEdt6) in my laptop and everything worked well. So, I spent my time searching in Google for a perfect solution and finally I came into this useful link :

So, in summary, if you face the same problem, here’s a solution:

  1. Open a command prompt window and go into the directory where you put your latex file.
  2. Run your latex file (e.g latex mylatexfile)
  3. Run BibTex (e.g bibtex mylatexfile), and then it will automatically download the missing files that I guess caused the error, so make sure you are connected with the internet!
  4. Rerun your latex file twice (this is to make your references integrated and listed in your latex files), and done! 🙂

Now, you can find the executed file in dvi format in your latex directory and the problem is solved. This works for me,  hope it solves your problem as well. 😀

  1. Very nice tip: The “bibtex mylatexfile” did the trick and installed my “plaindin” style. Thanks.
