# Error: PDFLaTeX

Hello, I've had the error:

Error: PDFLaTeX does not seem to be installed. Download it from ctan.org and try again.

when I've tried to run the example "st_example.tex" described in the documentation of Sage called: "using SageTeX" (http://www.sagemath.org/doc/tutorial/...), but I have gotten that error. I'm running a Sage notebook installed in a VM in windows 7 in my desktop computer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thank you

Well... is pdflatex installed? I think you'd have to have it installed in the VM, not just on your desktop, without some elaborate workaround. Hopefully this is all it is.

I noticed the same error. In sage 6.1.1 and earlier under windows you can evaluate without any problems sage: % latex sage: This is {\ LaTeX} but not in sage 6.2 With Sage notebook installed in a VM from sage.-6-2.ova we can't install anything. Does the sage-6.2.ova is incomplete? Any tips? Thank you
