# Delete MiKTeX setup files

I just installed complete MiKTeX 64 bit. I noticed the setup files lie in my AppData/Local/Temp folder and it's taking up about 1 GB. Does it contain any important files for MiKTeX to run or can I safely delete it?

Is your installing functioning properly? Did you install it to that folder (hopefully not, but to C:\Program Files\ instead)? –  Werner Mar 25 '14 at 23:02
Yes it is fine. I installed to a separate folder in C:\Program Files, yes. –  carlinuseslatex Mar 25 '14 at 23:21
Then you should be able to delete it safely. The TeX Distribution Structure (TDS), once installed, includes everything (local and university) in the same folder structure (unless otherwise specified during setup). Note that you may still require an editor in order to "properly" use (La)TeX. See LaTeX Editors/IDEs. –  Werner Mar 25 '14 at 23:38
All right great. Already have editor and everything else set up. Thanks –  carlinuseslatex Mar 25 '14 at 23:39
