Dear MiKTeX Experts,
at work we have downloaded all the miktex packages from a ctan-server into a local directory and set the package repository to install files from this directory (and not the internet). However, I have noticed a strange behaviour regarding the geometry package. The corresponding tar.lzma-file in our local directory contains the geometry.sty version dated [2010/03/13 v5.3]. When I open the miktex package manager and even after manually synchronising the database, the package manager says that the geometry package was packaged on 2008-12-23. That is the version that was contained in the basic-setup-file we use to install miktex 2.8. Can anyone tell me, why the package manager does not display the correct date?
Seeing as I do not have admin privileges, I cannot un- and reinstall the package to see which version is installed.
Thanks in advance for any help.
