My goal is to install ProTeXt on a new PC. I've used over the years
several versions of LaTeX
systems including the 2008 version of ProTeXt/MikTex with WinEdt as the
On my new machine I have just downloaded and installed the new version
of ProTeXt and have
been following the directions given in "The Quickest Way to a TeX
System". On page 9 section 1.5.4
there are remarks about adding an already present Local TEXMF tree
(normally in C:\localtexmf) to the
MikTeX search path using the Roots tab.
I am a little confused. My questions are:
1. In the Roots screen, do I want to click yes on the button to show the
maintained root directories?
2. I can't find C:\localtexmf, but there is already a folder C:Local Tex
Files which has an existing
localtexmf-like structure. Is the latter folder a synonym or a
replacement for the former folder?
Is there some possible naming conflict?
Any clarification will be greatly appreciated.
