gave me a pop up window. This window, in turn, gave me the option of running a batch file. In the old days I was using emTeX and it used a lot of environment variables. This is the way Professor Eberhard Mattes wrote it, so I had to set these environment variables Then I switched to MikTex, and I added the MikTeX path. I called my batch file SET_BOTH.BAT,
since I can use it to set the environment variables for both compilers.
Actually, I should have called mu original batch file, SET_BOTHE.BAT since it did set all environment variables for the drive E:. When I copied this batch file, which resides in E:\TeXVols to C:\TeXVols on my removable hard drive it
gave me trouble. When I adapted SET_BOTH.BAT to the drive C:
everything was OK.
I hope that my description makes sense.
Actually, I think that it is really cool, that I can go back and run my old DOS based emTeX in the same project directory.
PS.( I am running Windows 2000 on my office machine. There I also use drive C: for my project directory. There the SETBOTHE_BAT file did not cause any problems.)
