Some defaults from my old MiKTeX .ini file (local-texmf/scripts/perl/
texexec.ini) I can't test this as I have defected to a saner
enable variable miktex at top of file and some variation of this below.
for miktex set UsedInterfaces to en, uk
for miktex set UserInterface to uk
for miktex set TeXExecutable to pdfetex.exe
for miktex set TeXVirginFlag to -initialize
for miktex set TeXBatchFlag to -interaction=batchmode
for miktex set TeXFormatFlag to &
for miktex set MpToTeXExecutable to mptotex.exe
for miktex set MpVirginFlag to -initialize
for miktex set MpPassString to
for miktex set MpBatchFlag to -interaction=batchmode
for miktex set MpFormat to metafun
for miktex set MpFormatFlag to -undump=
for miktex set TeXFormatPath to "d:\local-texmf\miktex\fmt\"
for miktex set ConTeXtPath to "d:\local-texmf\tex\context\base\"
for miktex set SetupPath to "c:\Progra~1\MiKTeX\miktek\base\"
for miktex set TeXScriptsPath to "d:\local-texmf\scripts\context
for miktex set TeXProgramPath to "c:\Progra~1\MiKTeX\miktex\bin\"
Also mptopdf will not work unless you set the TEXSYSTEM environment
variable to "miktex" as on ContextGarden.
Also it occurs to me that texexec will not recognise test.txt, but
will expect test and add .tex itself.
Don't forget to update fndb at every opportunity from MikTeX's
