Currently I cannot compile using the moderncv package. I just get the message

File moderncv-additions.sty not found

I am using MiKTeX 2.9.6500 64-bit. When I used it the last time in september I did not have any problems. And I did not change anything.

Can someone help me?

The current moderncv package is version 2.0.0 and is integrated in complete current MiKTeX 2.9.

The file moderncv-additions.sty is not part of official moderncv, it is an addition for a special version, collected in file bewerbungsmappe.zip, based on version 0.8 from 2010/05/24.

With updateing MiKTeX to the current version and with already installed class moderncv you also update moderncv to curreent version 2.0.0. Then there is no file moderncv-additions.sty available.

If you insist in running this outdated version you can download the file bewerbungsmappe.zip from TU Graz, extract all files into a new directory and add there your own CV TeX code.

  • Any suggestions to update the files which worked in the past with moderncv-additions?

It is not part of MiKTeX, nor does it seem to be an official package. You can find a file of this name here on GitHub.
