I have installed MikTek 2.4 some time ago and happily used it regularly =
without any major problems apart from pdftex and fonts related problems. =
Today I decided to see what upgrades were available via the MikTex =
update wizard and installed all the "miktex-*" ones.
Surprise surprise after doing that nothing seems to work anymore =
(pdftex, latex, tex, they all abort with the same "Fatal format file =
error; I am stymied").
I have been "googling" about the topic and read about possible cause for =
this and remedies however, when I try to update the database with =
"initexmf -u", or via the "update now" in the "format files" tab of the =
MikTex Options program, nothing seems to get fixed!
Any clues as to what could I do to check what's wrong?
Thank you in advance!
