NAME
       initexmf	- MiKTeX configuration utility

SYNOPSIS
       initexmf	[option...]

DESCRIPTION
       initexmf	can be used to configure MiKTeX.

USER MODE VS. ADMINISTRATOR MODE
       This utility can	be run in two modes:

       User mode (default)
	   MiKTeX operates on user-scoped configuration	and data files.

       Administrator mode
	   Only	system-wide MiKTeX configuration and data files	are modified,
	   assuming that the MiKTeX setup is shared by all users. The utility
	   must	be run with administrator privileges.

       By default, the utility runs in user mode. You can turn on
       administrator mode with the --admin option. For example,	if you want to
       update the system-wide file name	database, you invoke the utility as
       follows:

	   > initexmf --admin --update-fndb

OPTIONS
       --admin
	   Run in administrator	mode:

	   o   Operate on the system-wide MiKTeX configuration data store.

	   o   Install packages	for all	users.

	   Using this option requires a	shared MiKTeX setup, i.e., MiKTeX must
	   have	been set up for	all users. The program must be run with
	   administrator privileges.

       --default-paper-size=paper
	   Set the default paper size.	paper must be a4 or letter.

       --disable-installer
	   Disable automatic installation of packages.	Specifying this	option
	   overrules settings in the MiKTeX configuration data store.

       --dump
	   Create all memory dump files.

       --dump=name
	   Dump	the specified memory dump file.

       --edit-config-file=configfile
	   Open	the specified config file in a text editor.

       --enable-installer
	   Enable automatic installation of packages.  Specifying this option
	   overrules settings in the MiKTeX configuration data store.

       --engine=engine
	   Engine to be	used when generating format files.

       --force
	   Force --mklinks to overwrite	existing executables.

       --list-formats
	   List	all known formats.

       --list-modes
	   List	all known METAFONT modes.

       --mklangs
	   Create language.dat,	language.dat.lua and language.def.

       --mklinks
	   Create all possible links.

       --mklinks=category
	   Create links	for the	specified category, which must be one of:

	   formats
	       Create links from format	names to TeX engines. For example,
	       latex will become a link	to miktex-tex and invoking latex will
	       cause TeX to load the format file latex.fmt.

	   miktex
	       Create links from standard program names	to miktex-
	       executables. For	example, tex will become a link	to miktex-tex.

	   scripts
	       Create executable links from script names to script wrappers.
	       For example, latexmk will become	a link to the internal Perl
	       wrapper runperl and invoking latexmk will eventually execute
	       the Perl	script latexmk.pl.

       --mkmaps
	   Build the font map files.

       --print-only
	   Print what would be done. Nothing is	changed.

       --quiet
	   Suppress screen output.

       --register-root=dir
	   Register a TEXMF root directory.

       --remove-links
	   Remove the links which were created by --mklinks.

       --report
	   Write a MiKTeX configuration	report.

       --set-config-value=[section]valuename=value
	   Set a value to be stored in the MiKTeX configuration	data store
	   (see	miktex.ini(5)).

       --show-config-value=[section]valuename
	   Print a value from the MiKTeX configuration data store (see
	   miktex.ini(5)).

       --unregister-root=dir
	   Unregister a	TEXMF root directory.

       --update-fndb
	   Refresh the whole file name database.

       --update-fndb=dir
	   Refresh the file name database for a	specific TEXMF tree.

       --user-roots=directories
	   Register user root directories.

       --verbose
	   Print information on	what is	being done.

       --version
