I've been using geany a lot on lubuntu recently, and I wanted to give it a try in Windows XP.
The program works well, except when I want to compile a Latex file : I press F9, geany *hangs* for 20 seconds (more than the time it takes to compile the file) then prints "Compilation failed." whith no error message (Help -> Debug messages, shows a "CreateChildProcess" failed). The file compiles fine when pdflatex is invoqued from the command line.
I've tried to specify the exact location of the pdflatex program to Geany but the problem remains. Setting the working directory to the bin/ folder of Miktex makes it unable to find the .tex file that should be compiled.
I'm using Geany 0.21.
