I am trying to run the code found here, but I get the error. I did not find the pgflibrary 'pgflibraryqrr.shapes.openrectangle.code.tex'..... I put the files in the directory

C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\generic\pgf\libraries\shapes

and did a Refresh FNDB in MiKTeX but I could not get the file to compile. Can you tell me where I need to put the tikzlibraryqrr.shapes.openrectangle.code.tex file? Thanks.

Here is the original code found here:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}
\usepackage{fourier}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{epigraph}
\usepgflibrary{qrr.shapes.openrectangle}

\definecolor{myblueii}{RGB}{63,200,244}
\definecolor{myblueiii}{RGB}{199,234,253}

\tikzset{
mynode/.style={
  rounded corners=30pt,
  shape=open rectangle,
  open rectangle fill=myblueii,
  open rectangle sides=#1,
  }
}

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
  {\normalfont\huge\sffamily}
  {}
  {20pt}
  {%

    outer sep=0pt,
    fill=myblueiii] (titlerect) {};
  \node[

  • Probably you ought not install it there - it does not seem the right place, though I know nothing about MikTeX. You can always put the file in your working directory (i.e. the same directory as your .tex file). – cfr Apr 8 '16 at 22:23

I did not found this library inside the MiKTeX Package manager.

But you always can do the following: visit the page and copy the two files tikzlibraryqrr.shapes.openrectangle.code.tex and pgflibraryqrr.shapes.openrectangle.code.tex into the same directory you have your code, let's say mwe.tex. Then just compile. With my current MiKTeX I got no error, but an resulting pdf!
