I installed MiKTeX 64 bit on Windows 7 (64 bit). The Admin panel show the following directories:

enter image description here

But the directories that are supposed to be in C:\Users\username\AppData\ do not exist. (It may be the case that in the 64 bit version those directories are not used anymore; but then why are they in the Admin Panel?)

Further, I need to install the Minion Pro files and the related guide instructs to place certain files to certain directories. (For example to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\MikTeX\2.x\fonts\type1\Adobe\MinionPro\) What am I supposed to do now?)

    The AppData folder is invisible by default under windows. You can show hidden files and folders under your files browser settings. Futhermore you can reach this folder by typing %AppData% in the address line of your file browser. – faltfe Jul 5 '18 at 10:06
