Mixed results:

mtxrun.cmd bin:Acrobat.lnk file:showcase.pdf

This opens Acrobat correctly (yay!)


"... This file cannot be found"

so mtx is not searching the entire tree for the file?


texmfstart  bin:scite file:context.tex

does nothing. No error message, just returns the prompt. Also:

mtxrun.cmd  bin:scite file:context.tex
> 'scite' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

So maybe these commands are not searching the tree?
