How to enable package amsaddr for MiKTeX. There is not amsaddr in directory of TeX. That's why TeX cannot find amsaddr.sty.

Running the file amsaddr.dtx I have this picture, but there is not file amsaddr.sty:

compiled dtx file

Edit: I am using an MiKTeX admin installation ...

  • amsaddr is an add-on package; it's not part of the AMS package support. But it's on CTAN, so miktex should be able to add it "on the fly". – barbara beeton Jun 18 '19 at 16:09
  • So, I've downloaded zip file of amsaddr from CTAN, and what should I do next? – Dozzy Cooper Jun 18 '19 at 16:12
  • Unzip the zip file, then run amsaddr.ins through latex. (This is the instruction in the README file.) – barbara beeton Jun 18 '19 at 16:18
  • yes, but texmaker doesn't see this file and nothing see it. – Dozzy Cooper Jun 18 '19 at 16:23
  • I'm not a miktex user, so I don't know the best answer for this. How to add a package to the miktex "library" should be described in the miktex documentation. – barbara beeton Jun 18 '19 at 16:27

Well, with an complete installation of MiKTeX (admin mode) I can see the package amsaddr in the MiKTeX Console:

miktex console packages

As you can see I added name amsaddr (see red arrow in image) and selected to search for it (red circle marked with 1) to get a list of installed packages amsaddr by MiKTeX.

If you have not already installed that package the + sign in the red circle marked with 2 will be dark and shows you can install this package by clicking on the + sign!

BTW: To get the window I showed you you have to start the MiKTeX Console in the apps of windows, then click on use in admin mode (because you also have an admin installation) and the click on Packages I marked in the image with the long red arrow ...

If you did changes in user mode it is possible you have to do that again in user mode ...

Because you gave us no minimal working example (MWE) I can not test if I get the same error message you got ...
