[texworks] problem getting APA.cls running on locked-down PC

I've installed MiKTeX at work so I had to install only the basic version; our PCs are locked down so they won't allow the installer for the complete version to pull the files off the internet (grr). The PC is running XP Pro.

I am trying to get the APA class to work. I have extracted and put the files in \MiKTeX\tex\latex\apa, but the TeXworks editor still can't find apa.cls: when I try to typeset a document I get the error message:

! LaTeX Error: File `apa.cls' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: cls)

Enter file name: 

If I move the file somewhere else I get the error message "Not a local package repository", no matter where I put the files. 

Can anyone help??
