There is a style called Lifecon that is not included in the normal CTAN
repositories for some reason. As such, MiKTeX does not have it listed in it's
package manager. This means a manual install. Ugh.

I've scoured Google and these forums and followed the advice I've seen. I have
created a file path on my USB stick called Local/tex/latex/lifecon and put the
lifecon.sty file in it. I have then gone into MiKTeX options and registred
that path as a root. I then updated the file name database. From there, I re-
opened the package manager. Nothing, not a sign of lifecon. I even tried
running mpm --install from the command line. Says it doesn't know or can't
find the package.

Anyway, I'm greatly frustrated. I'm sure this would all work if I wasn't
trying to work off of a USB stick, but as I have to use this at work, USB is
my only route.

Thanks for your help.
