[texhax] TeXnic configuration

Thanks very much for your efforts to teach an ignorant swede how to install
LaTex. However, now I´ve found what I really was looking for, a
math-handling program, fully integrated with Microsoft Word. As you surely
understand I´m talking about Aurora. Against all odds, this program works
perfectly also in my hands and on my computer and will probably cover all my
needs. The price for Aurora, $43, is negligible. (This is no ad if you
thought so!)

Thanks again. Perhaps I will find a reason to torment you with further
LaTex-related questions in the future. Watch out!

Bye for now,

or simply search Windows for the file latex.exe, and note which directory 
it is located in. Then tell the TeXnicCenter wizard that path (navigate to 

If latex.exe is not found, well then you have no LaTeX installed ;-)
