Hi.

Yesterday I decided to upgrade my old version of Miktex 2.2 to the
newest version 2.4. I deleted my old version of miktex and instaled the
newest version. Unfortunately I had some problems in the moment I tried to
use Winedt. I was not able to obtain a dvi file after compiling my tex
files. (I obtained the message: can not find latex.efmt; I can´t find the default format file).

Below I included  the error message. Frankly I have no idea about how I can
fix it. (I spent a lot of time reinstaling miktex, winedt, etc....).
Could you help me?

Question: Is this a miktex problem ?
