grffile can be installed with the package manager of miktex (and of
TeXLive). In miktex it is in the package "oberdiek". Normally it
takes miktex and TeXLive only one or two days to include updates of
Heikos packages. So they should be no need to install it manually in
a current TeXsystem. 

Apart from this: Don't put manually files in the main ("Install")
root of miktex. You can loose them when miktex updates or installs
packages. User either the roots UserData, CommonData or a new own
local root.
