How to install Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) style for MiKTeK on Windows 7

Following on from my previous post… I had the same issue when working

on my Microsoft Windows desktop at home, i.e. got the following error “!

LaTeX Error: File `llncs.cls’ not found.“. So had to download the

“” file yet again from

  1. Dowload and extract

  2. Create a directory called splncs in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX


  3. Move the extracted file splncs.bst, splncs_srt.bst, and

    splncs03.bst into the new directory C:\Program Files\MiKTeX


  4. Move the extracted directory ?? into C:\Program Files\MiKTeX


  5. Rebuild the filename database by Miktek - Maintenance - Settings,

    and click on the “Refresh FNDB” button (this may take a while

    depending on your computer)
