I have never been able to get the Tex stuff to work. I've never
even been able to install it successfully.
I admit it, I'm a dolt.
Anybody have the "magic beans" on this?
I've tried installing and reinstalling. Never can get it to work.
Here's some feedback from my last "install attempts":
Reinstalled, all of Tex:
* Publishing group, which includes: ec-fonts-mftraced
* Text group, which includes Jadetex
Popup window of setup:
postinstall-ec-fonts-mftraced.sh exit code 1
Package: Unknown package
exim.sh exit code 1
mined.sh exit code 1
isn't 'postinstall-ec-fonts-mftraced.sh' misnamed?
The following packages have been diagnosed by
'cygcheck -c' as having problems:

Cygwin Configuration Diagnostics
I did notice in latex.log that it references a file:
"latex.aux". Is the file name extension a problem?
