This is a software question, specific to MiKTeX: I have automatic downloading of packages enabled, so that if I try to use a style that's not in the existing directory trees, it is downloaded from CTAN and installed. The problem is that MiKTeX installs it under
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\MiKTeX\2.9), which bloats my roaming profile. Is there a way to change this destination?
I already have another root for styles I install myself, but I can't get MiKTeX to use it for auto-installed packages. In the Roots list in MiKTeX Settings (
%APPDATA% folder has the tag "UserInstall". It won't let me edit or delete its path, or tag another root "UserInstall". Is there a way to do this, or am I stuck with rearranging the downloaded packages by hand afterwards?
