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

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?

I'm afraid its none of it. C:\Local Tex doesn't come with MiKTeX. Are you sure its coming from a different/older TeX-installation on your machine?

```Is there some possible naming conflict?
```
```
```
It depends how you order your Local TEXMF Path inside the list of registrated root directories. Files are searched, concerning to the list, from top to bottom.
