I have several cls files and macros in a folder that is set as a root directory for MikTeX in Windows (The files are in
C:/localtexmf/tex/latex/Macros and the root directory is set as
C:/localtexmf). However, whenever I update any of the files in this folder, or add new cls files, I need to run the update FNDB again for LaTeX (TeXMaker) to recognize the changes. On other operating systems (Ubuntu and Mac) once the folder is specified within the tree I did not need to run an update every time. Is this not the case for Windows?
Any thoughts much appreciated.
