I spend quite a while now moving my folders containing my .sty files. They are of the kind nicepackage/nicepackage.sty , as specified in the latex wikibook
My operating system is windows 7, and I want to use Miktex 2.9
In all my trials, I created myself the folders named "texmf", "tex", "latex" and "TUD".
For all these configurations, I tried to define as a root for package installation in "MikTex package manager" and "MikTex settings" the folders
the corresponding parent folder
Each time, I get an error message like "Not a TDS compliant root directory"
I cannot install the packages "on the fly" for security reasons (workplace computer).
I would like an answer giving a mathematically accurate description of a local package repository (ideally using the notations for regular languages), and which package should be declared as the local package repository.
Also, if I should use any folder created during the installation of MikTex, please mention it.
A link to a guide which contains this information would also be interesting.
This would enable anyone who thinks like me to either solve this problem or determine that it comes from something else.
