# Flashcard Package Isn't Compiling in Latex

I start by saying that I have zero aptitude for coding and programming.

I'm using MikTeX, the most recent version I believe, and WinEdt as my interface. I want to use the flashcard package so I can generate some flashcards that I'll be able to print out. The Anki flashcard software doesn't do it for me (in case anyone is to suggest this).

Anyway, I've installed the flashcard package; it was in my Package Manager. However, I can't get it to compile the pdf that I need. Here's an example of the code that I tried to compile that was taken directly from the documentation:

\documentclass[avery5388,grid,frame]{flashcards}  \cardfrontstyle[\large\slshape]{headings} \cardbackstyle{empty} \begin{document}  \cardfrontfoot{Functional Analysis}   \begin{flashcard}[Definition]{Norm on a Linear Space \\ Normed Space}  A real-valued function $||x||$ defined on a linear space $X$, where $x \in X$, is said to be a \emph{norm on} $X$ if   \smallskip  \begin{description} \item [Positivity] $||x|| \geq 0$, \item [Triangle Inequality] $||x+y|| \leq ||x|| + ||y||$, \item [Homogeneity] $||\alpha x|| = |\alpha| \: ||x||$, $\alpha$ an arbitrary scalar, \item [Positive Definiteness] $||x|| = 0$ if and only if $x=0$, \end{description}  \smallskip  where $x$ and $y$ are arbitrary points in $X$.  \medskip  A linear/vector space with a norm is called a \emph{normed space}. \end{flashcard}  \begin{flashcard}[Definition]{Inner Product}  Let $X$ be a complex linear space. An \emph{inner product} on $X$ is a mapping that associates to each pair of vectors $x$, $y$ a scalar, denoted $(x,y)$, that satisfies the following properties:  \medskip  \begin{description} \item [Additivity] $(x+y,z) = (x,z) + (y,z)$, \item [Homogeneity] $(\alpha \: x, y) = \alpha (x,y)$, \item [Symmetry] $(x,y) = \overline{(y,x)}$, \item [Positive Definiteness] $(x,x) > 0$, when $x\neq0$. \end{description} \end{flashcard}   \begin{flashcard}[Definition]{Linear Transformation/Operator}  A transformation $L$ of (operator on) a linear space $X$ into a linear space $Y$, where $X$ and $Y$ have the same scalar field, is said to be a \emph{linear transformation (operator)} if  \medskip  \begin{enumerate} \item $L(\alpha x) = \alpha L(x), \forall x\in X$ and $\forall$ scalars $\alpha$, and \item $L(x_1 + x_2) = L(x_1) + L(x_2)$ for all $x_1,x_2 \in X$. \end{enumerate}  \end{flashcard} \end{document} 


This is the error that it generated:

I've tried some other very simple examples as well, and nothing happens. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

Edit: I tried a simpler example shown below:

\documentclass[avery5371]{flashcards} \begin{document} \begin{flashcard}{Start} To finish \end{flashcard} \end{document} 


And it generated this error:

I think I didn't install the package properly. Anyone have any ideas?
