I am writing an application which generates .tex filed and invokes pdflatex (on windows/texlive for now, but it should be compatible with toher distros and OS).
I would like to enable the user to include custom directories for resources shared between the generated .tex files.
Under Linux I had done that simply by setting the
TEXINPUTS environment variable.
Now under windows, initially the variable is empty, so I cannot just "append" stuff there.
However, If I set
TEXINPUTS to any paths, pdflatex seems to exclusively check these paths, and forget about whatever it had checked before.
doesn't reconize the default paths anymore.
This results in pdflatex not even finding the input file anymore
How do I properly add input paths on windows?
