LaTeX Question

Cannot install framed.sty when I use knitr and RStudio to produce a pdf file on windows

I am trying to use RStudio and knitr to produce PDF files on Windows 10. There is no LaTex on my computer. When clicking "Compile PDF" button, I have this error message:

LaTex Error: File 'framed.sty' not found.
==>Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced.


I found a framed.sty file under H:\R\win-library\3.3\knitr\misc. It looks like RStudio cannot find the path. So, I try some methods. For example, install framed package. I downloaded framed package from https://www.ctan.org/pkg/framed?lang=en. However, all the websites I found are talking about the solution on Mac or Linux, for example https://github.com/rstudio/rmarkdown/issues/39. I do not know how to fix this problem on Windows 10. Could anyone please help me out here?

Answer

Presumably you were using MiKTeX on Windows. You can use its package manager to install a missing package: https://docs.miktex.org/manual/pkgmgt.html
