Did you run texhash?  This will update the file database and is
required if you add new files/directories.

This should work.

Hmm, this means that you updated the database.  Or is your bibtex file
in a TEXMF tree which doesn't begin with "!!"?.

If you run texhash, make sure a database is created for $MIKTEX.  If
not, you probably have to add $MIKTEX to TEXMFDBS, too.

Could you run tex on the commandline with kpathsea debugging enabled?
It is described in the kpathsea info manual (run "info kpathsea" and go
to section 2.6.3).

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
