I just installed TeX LiVE 2012 on my Windows machine, leaving all directories at their default settings. However, until I explicitly set the environment variable TEXMFHOME to c:\home\texmf, pdfLaTeX could not find .sty files under that directory. I have HOME set to  c:\home, so I expected this to be found automatically, but if not, shouldn't the installation set TEXMFHOME?
