MiKTeX doesn't officially have a TEXINPUTS path. If it uses it at all
(and I have never tried it) it probably puts it after the default
(search localtexmf and then texmf).
It would seem you have two choices:
1. Edit texmf\miktex\config\miktex.ini, looking for "Input Dirs" under
the [LaTeX] section. Prepend you TEXINPUTS path to the one there.
2. Use a command line option. Quoting from the MiKTeX 2.1 manual:
The command-line option --include-directory=folder allows
you to extend the input search path for one invocation of TeX.
C:\> tex --include-directory="C:\My TeX" foo.tex
prepends C:\My TeX to the input search path, i.e. C:\My TeX
will be searched first, when TeX opens any input file (including
You can specify either absolute paths (as in the example above)
or relative paths.
I can't immediately check if this option was available before version 2.1.
