As mentioned in my other message, "first-setup.bat weirdness I: cloned
system" I've now switched to the first-setup.bat way of updating. Two
pieces of weirdness on the main machine:
1. mtx-context | running command: xetex --ini --etex --8bit
makes vista complain:
xetex.exe - Unable to Locate Component
This application has failed to start because xetex.dll was not found.
Pressing OK, xetex crashes and things continue until
2. mtx-context | running command: xetex --ini --etex --8bit
Then the same error occurs.
After xetex crashes things continue briefly till first-setup.bat exits.
Everything works fine, except that every now and then the following
happens when I run a file:
This is LuaTeX, Version 0.97.0 (TeX Live 2016/W32TeX)
system commands enabled.
A fresh run of first-setup.bat makes the problem go away but it is
annoying. After getting even more weirdness when cloning to another
machine -- see "first-setup.bat weirdness I: cloned system" -- it seems
appropriate to put this one out to the forum as well.
Any explanations and advice would be appreciated. Never had these problems
using when updating manually... Thanks in advance and
