I'm using MiKTeX 2.9 and TeXstudio 2.4 on Windows with europecv package but there's something wrong trying to load the europasslogo file.

My .tex document is pretty simple so far:


But it fails with error File 'europasslogo' not found. \begin{europecv}. I have found the required file to be located in C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX\doc\latex\europecv in both .pdf and .eps. I copied the PDF file to the same directory as my .tex file and it now works.

But this doesn't seem it should be required at all... Anyone knows how to fix it?

No problem here (TeX Live 2012). – egreg Sep 4 '12 at 10:39
No problem also here, TeX Live 2012 on Mac OS, and compiling using pdflatex. You tagged your questions as XeTeX, try pdflatex maybe? – Dror Sep 4 '12 at 11:46
@Dror Just changed my tags... I'm actually using pdflatex (I was having problems with XeTeX and accents) but the problem persists. – Ricardo Amaral Sep 4 '12 at 11:49

As you have already found out, it is a packaging error in MiKTeX, the files in


except europecv.pdf belong to directory


I have made a bug report.

Update 2012-09-05, Christian Schenk has fixed the bug in MiKTeX:

The bug has been fixed. The fix will be made available with the next update cycle. You can watch the MiKTeX project page for further information on the next update.

I realized that, eventually, but I tried to move all of them (except europecv.pdf) to tex/latex/europecv/ and it still doesn't load the logo. – Ricardo Amaral Sep 4 '12 at 12:55
You have to refresh the file name database. – Heiko Oberdiek Sep 4 '12 at 13:28
