 I'm using texworks under Windows Vista and I want to define e. g.
the directory

c: user1/texfiles/stylefiles 

which contains files like mopreface.tex 
as a general source for files used in tex commands like


Or can I copy the stylefiles directory to a directory
which is automatically checked 
on compiling the \input - command ?

Thanks to Herbert for the prompt answer.

Where is that file? The input command also assumes the file has extension .tex 
if no extension is given. You really don't give folks enough information to help
