This question already has an answer here:
I used MiKTeX 2.9 on windows.
I have downloaded a package I want to install from the internet (manually, not through MiKTeX). The archive (
*.lmza) containing the package was saved to a directory on my
Through MikTeX -> Maintenance -> Settings -> Packages -> Change...
I can select the directory in which I have saved the archive containing the package.
However, if I choose
Packages shall be installed from a directory and choose the location of the package, I get this error message:
C:\my\package\is\here does not seem to be a local package repository.
What does it take for a directory/folder to become a
local package repository?
