  • I am trying to make my first tex file and view with DVI. When I compile, I am not getting any output. The following error messages appear:

    -Please type input file name (no extension) ==
    -Couldn't find input index file

    Anybody know what these mean. Does it not know where to look for my file? Where should my files be stored?? THanks.
