I'm trying to create my own document class based on memoir.
But right now I can't even seem to add it to the right spot.

I put it in the user install path detailed here: https://miktex.org/kb/texmf-roots (Note that the path for Windows is missing the AppData part. In the MiKTeX console it shows the correct path)
And then refreshed the file name database (as detailed here: https://miktex.org/howto/miktex-console) but when trying to typeset it won't find the cls file. I keep getting the error: ! LaTeX Error: File connectingmedia.cls' not found., but I have the file connectingmedia.cls in %AppData%\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\latex\connectingmedia, as it should be. The path %AppData%\MiKTeX\2.9 is configured as a TEXMF root dir in MiKTeX. (The default)

  • Did you try to create a system-wide TeXMF-local root, with the TDS architecture?

  • The path %AppData%\MiKTeX\2.9 is configured like that by default already.

  • Personally I have both. Perhaps both roots are not supposed to contain the same kind of things?

    Did you refresh the file name database in both User and Admin mode? (In case you have a multi-user installation.)

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because solved in comments
