      Description

      While running a .bat inside a jenkins job, on a windows 10 slave node, at the point where a pdf is to be generated, using pdflatex of miktex, the job hangs indefinitely. No error is generated or whatsoever. I have been running the same .bat script, at the same node, with the exact same tools and configuration, by hand, all this time, and it works like a charm. Problem occurs when loading ("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\graphics-cfg\graphics.cfg") Here's the output

      This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.19 (MiKTeX 2.9.6630 64-bit)

          For anyone interested I managed to resolve this issue by removing the old MiKTeX install, and instaling TeX Live from scratch. I had installed MiKTeX from chocolatey so maybe that's what caused the issue at the first place. Still it's interesting enough why no error was prompted and why I was able to compile my pdf by hand.

          Probably just another case of the agent process being headless. When started as a service, there's no desktop session by default, so anything involving UI, even invisibly, doesn't work. Given where it hangs, seems most likely.
