does running



I do not remember if texmf-local is always searched or needs to have its contents presearched via texhash

There is also an interface for this in the texlive manager (Update filename database)

Subject: pdflatex not finding local files in Win 10

I just finished installing TeX Live 2019 in a Windows 10 VM using the .exe installer on this page:


The install completed successfully, but when I typeset using pdflatex, it isn't finding local files I put in:


or in:


Both of these directories were created by the installer. A fresh install on macOS finds files placed in the corresponding folder on my Library folder. What else do I need to do to get TeX to find files placed there?

Thank you!
