I've installed Miktex for the local user only so it is installed in C:\Users\~\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9. I had to add save_size=80000 to pdflatex.ini in ..\miktex\config to avoid errors when compiling a large document.

However, each time I update packages with the package manager the pdflatex.ini is repaired to its original. Is there any way around this?


Run on the command line

 initexmf --edit-config-file pdflatex

This will open a local pdflatex.ini in which you can put your save-size setting
