I am trying to use the console version of mpm to install into a different
tree than the one in Program Files. According to the html help pages, this
should be possible with the --install-root option on the command line.
However, I get the following:
C:\temp>mpm --install-root="c:\Documents and Settings\joeuser\Application
mpm: --install-root=c:\Documents and Settings\joeuser\Application
Data\MiKTeX\2.6: unknown option
So, it looks as if this feature is switched off. In the source code (
mpm.cpp) I find
T_("install-root"), 0, POPT_ARG_STRING, 0, OPT_INSTALL_ROOT,
Use the specified directory as the installation destination."),
so it seems like this feature is only available in "standalone" versions,
which means "non-windows" versions. Does anybody know if it is possible to
use this feature under windows somehow?
thanks - Michiel
