Quarto not rendering pdf on Windows while rendering on Mac

I use Rstudio on my both Mac and Windows (files on the cloud).

While I am able to render my Quarto file (a journal article draft) into a pdf on my Mac, it does not render on Windows. The error message is as follows:

"running xelatex - 1

This did not work:


How can I work around this?

Did you see https://yihui.org/tinytex/#maintenance ?

Thank you for sharing. Yes, the advice there did not help. Maybe I should raise the issue there.

So you executed the following lines and that did not work :

> tinytex::tlmgr_search('setspace.sty') 
tlmgr search --file --global "setspace.sty"
tlmgr.pl: package repository https://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ctan.org/tex/systems/texlive/tlnet (not verified: pubkey missing)
> tinytex::tlmgr_install("setspace") 
tlmgr install setspace
tlmgr.pl: package repository https://mirrors.mit.edu/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet (not verified: pubkey missing)
[1/1, ??:??/??:??] install: setspace [8k]

tlmgr.pl: package log updated: C:/Users/Han/AppData/Roaming/TinyTeX/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log
tlmgr.pl: command log updated: C:/Users/Han/AppData/Roaming/TinyTeX/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr-commands.log

If that does not work be more specific: I can't read your computerscreen (yet :wink:)

Thank you for your answer. Reinstalling TinyTex did solve the "setspace.sty" problem on my Windows. [tinytex] TinyTeX: A lightweight, cross-platform, portable, and easy-to-maintain LaTeX distribution based on TeX Live | /tinytex/ · Discussion #278 · yihui/yihui.org · GitHub
