Quick guide: Install Miktex and TexStudio
This article is about LaTeX (TeXnicCenter,WinShel,MikTex,etc.) which converts your typing into a nice, professional looking document, and BibTeX (JabRef, etc.) that is a tool for formatting lists of references.
Miktex is the underlying programme which converts your typing into a nice, professional looking document.
Winshel is a free multilingual integrated development environment (IDE) for LaTeX and TeX. The program includes a text editor, syntax highlighting, project management, spell checking, a table wizard, BibTeX support, Unicode support, different toolbars and user configuration options. It is not a LaTeX system; an additional LaTeX package is required.
These must be installed in the above order.
TeXnicCenter is a feature rich integrated development environment (IDE) for developing LaTeX-documents. This can be used instead of Winshel.
Download the setup file and run it. The setup will ask you to link it to Miktex.
In order to link it to Miktex select the Miktex/bin folder inside the folder where Miktex is installed.
Here’s a good link for Installing tips.
BibTeX is a tool for formatting lists of references. The BibTeX tool is typically used together with the LaTeX document preparation system. BibTeX makes it easy to cite sources in a consistent manner, by separating bibliographic information from the presentation of this information. This same principle of separation of content and presentation/style is used by LaTeX itself.
JabRef is an open source bibliography reference manager. The native file format used by JabRef is BibTeX, the standard LaTeX bibliography format.
