How do you say Happy New Year with LaTeX?

It sounds great to be able to use LaTeX for such greetings but however I have been unsuccessful with TexLive 2010. I performed the installation of acroTeX from CTAN i.e. LateXing acrotex.ins and put all the files in a folder under TeXLive 2010 and update the database with the TeXLive Manager but pdfLaTeX still complains: insdljs.sty not found though insdljs.sty exists. What is wrong?

Thanks a lot...

There's no way to know what is wrong unless you tell us where exactly insdljs.sty is. –  mpg Jan 13 '11 at 20:37
    
@mpg : Thanks. I created a folder acrotex as in C:\texlive\2010\acrotex and the insdljs.sty is there in that folder. Maybe it is not the right location??? –  yCalleecharan Jan 13 '11 at 20:46
    
Nope, it's not. You should place it somewhere under C:\texlive\2010\texmf-local\tex, preferably in a latex\acrotex subdiretory. Then update the database again and it should work. –  mpg Jan 14 '11 at 1:42
    
@mpg : Thanks a lot. Now it works. I have it as: C:\texlive\texmf-local\tex\latex\local\acrotex . You have provided me with the right answer. If you wish, then please turn your comments into an answer and I will accept it. –  yCalleecharan Jan 14 '11 at 15:42
    
@mpg. Converting your comment to an answer would be useful here: the question can then move off the 'unanswered' list. –  Joseph Wright Jan 25 '11 at 12:17

Thanks. This is the answer that "mpg" already supplied but since he hasn't converted his comment to a "proper" reply for a long time now, I am accepting your answer. –  yCalleecharan Jul 11 '11 at 5:34
