comment Slashbox with tables: Adjusting the diagonal separator for multiple rows
@ Andrew Swann Thank you very much. It works fine. I need a \backslashbox[50mm]{...} for example if I have longer words in the first cell. 1 vote up.

comment TeX Live 2011: Can I still update it to its final (frozen) state?
Thank you. I installed a fresh iso file on the new Windows machine, renamed the 2011 folder it to something else and then put the folder of the most recent version of TL2011 that I have from my old computer. A texhash is necessary afterwards. 1 vote up.

comment Is verbatimbox.sty missing in frozen TeX Live 2012?
@ Steven B. Segletes. Thanks. I think then I can download the latest version and place it in the TexLive 2012 directory. I have to check from the distribution from the last year iso release of TeXLive how to properly place the files belonging to verbatimbox. 1 vote up.

@ egreg. Thanks. I think that I would prefer to install the distribution first, overwrite the texlive folder afterwards with the most recent version of the distribution and then execute a texhash. I have to try it. 1 vote up.

@ Ulrike Fisher. Thanks. Perhaps you are right and it is the easier way. I just need to add the path to that TexLive to the path variable in Windows and put it first if I want to use that distribution instead of others. I was thinking installing the TexLive first and then overwrite it with a more recent version of the TeXLive distribution of that year as it will save the initial installation settings as well. 1 vote up.

@ texenthusiast Thanks for the information. Sometimes I wish to stick to a distribution of some point in time when I am working on a big project. But it makes sense to have multiple distributions so that I can always update one of them continuously. 1 vote up.

Thanks. I do also have the first iso release of TexLive 2012 installed in parallel with the frozen TexLive 2012. Perhaps I can just copy the appropriate files from the first iso release and place it in the frozen distribution and afterwards refresh the new distribution database. 1 vote up.

@ Werner. Ok. What if I install the TeXLive 2011 on the new computer and then overwrite the texlive directory with the one from my old computer which has the latest packages for year 2011? And then I can refresh the TeXLive database on the new machine. 1 vote up.
