I wrote an article in Latex together with Bibtex and the Harvard package to handle citations. The code compiled correctly with Miktex 2.7.
Now I have a new laptop which runs windows 7-64bits and I have installed Miktex 2.8. Miktex 2.7 is in fact not available anymore on the MIktex website (can I find it somewhere else?) and in any case it is not suggested for Windows 7. When I try to compile the same code with MIktex 2.8 it gives the following error message "Runaway argument? ***.compatibility with Harvard***....".  I wonder whether the Harvard package is indeed not compatible with newer versions of Miktex. I did not find anything in that sense on the web. I have also tried to install Miktex 2.9 instead of Miktex 2.8 and I get the same error. I have also copied the files of the Harvard package from the old pc and replace them manually in the same folders in the new pc with no result.  Can somone help me?
