That was exectly my point. If I said, from the prompt,

I get the same message you got.***** When I initialize my editor first  
(see the cscite script that somes with the larger versions of the  
distribution), then I can launch a console or shell from the editor and it  
works.

Try launching your shell by appropriately modifying the cscite shell  
script. Here it is to save you trouble.

texmfstart exaserver.rb --start --port=8061 --ipurl &

$OWNPATH/scite/lscite/scite

Now on Windows the script is quite different, and longer, but once I setup  
my launch application (notepad++ in this case) mkiv worked fine. I don't  
pretend to understand why.

***** The thing about that error is that, when I run

texmfstart texexec test.tex

mkiv creates another cache tree and ignores the one where it built the  
formats.
