MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs. TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Ervin Knuth who says that it is intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics.

It is very easy to install MiKTeX on Windows PC. The Setup Wizard guides you through the installation process. You don't have to be a computer expert. A complete set of additions (programs, styles, fonts) are available to help you typeset your documents.

MiKTeX's integrated package manager installs missing components from the Internet if required. This allows you to keep your TeX installation as minimal as possible (“Just enough TeX”). It Console helps you to keep your TeX system up-to-date by installing the latest package updates.

It comes with TeXworks, a TeX frontend that you can use to edit and preview LaTeX documents. The program is open source. You are welcome to redistribute the tool under certain conditions.

To set up a basic TeX/LaTeX system, download and run the Basic MiK TeX Installer. The software has the ability to install missing packages automatically, i.e., this installer is suitable for computers connected to the Internet.
