Best Answer

Besides TeX/LaTeX, you need to install the KOMA-Script bundle, scrbook belongs to it, as all classes and packages with a name starting with scr.

  • If you use MiKTeX, start the MiKTeX package manager (mpm) and install the package koma-script, the link points to the package description on the MiKTeX homepage.

  • If you use TeX Live, start the TeX Live Manager (tlmgr) and install the package koma-script. It can also be done on the command prompt: tlmgr install koma-script.
