Hi, I have been using the biber backend with biblatex (TexStudio with MiKTeX
on Win 7) with no problems, until now. On running pdflatex-biber-pdflatex, the
following message is given:

No .bbl or .blg files are being produced.
This error is not TeXstudio related: it comes from biber. It is
documented in its documentation:
4.1 Binary Caches
4.1 Binary Caches
PAR::Packer works by unpacking the required files to a cache
location. It only does this on the first run of a binary by computing
a hash of the binary and comparing it with the cache directory name
which contains the hash. So, if you run several versions of a binary,
you will end up with several cached trees which are never used. This
is particularly true if you are regularly testing new versions of the
Biber binary. It is a good idea to delete the caches for older
binaries as they are not needed and can take up a fair bit of
space. The caches are located in a temporary location which varies
from OS to OS. The cache name is:
I agree it is a very annoying trouble.
Thank you denisbitouze. I guess I'll take this to the biber forum, but perhaps
you can help me some more?
I have never tried to run (or test) multiple versions of any (tex related)
binary, so I am not sure why I am seeing this problem. Could this arise from
I found two cache-<hash> files under the user/temp directory, one older under
par-<username>\, than the other under par-<hex_encoded_username> \
(incidentally the one noted in the message is the newer one). However, neither
of the locations seem to have any "recode_data.xml" file (the file being
complained about as not found). Do I need to find this file from somewhere?
I have posted this at the biber forum:
