I want to migrate my home distro of MiKTeX to my work desktop and keep all of my installed packages. I want to do this because my workplace blocks my attempts at downloading packages I've included in my documents.. I've been using WriteLaTeX to create my documents because of this, but that becomes an issue when I want to embed images into my document.

Thanks in advance.

  • Have you tried just zipping your user directory and main installation folder? You can install a regular installation and overwrite with your zipped files, I'd say.

  • Your techniccenter has nothing to do with the packages you have installed. You are thinking about your TeX distribution (probably MikTeX as you are using Windows).

  • I thought that my packages were stored in my editor not my distro. Does that mean I can literally zip and move my distro to get all my packages?

    There is a miktex portable which you can transport on a stick. You can also download the miktex packages e.g. with a browser and save them in a folder and use this as a "local repository" to install packages in a normal miktex on the workplace. Commented Aug 4, 2014 at 13:55
