Aha, this is really interesting.... is this from TeX Live or MikTeX  

What I notice here is that the Input records are showing just the bare  
filename, whereas what I see in .synctex files on OS X is the complete  
filename (e.g., introduction.tex) and path if not in the current  
directory (e.g., ..../tex/latex/kpfonts/t1jkptt.fd). If the Windows  
implementations don't give the same information, then TW will need to  
try to search for the files in the same way TeX would.

What appears in the .synctex file if you give an explicit path to a  
file in your TeX document, e.g., \input "c:/path/to/my/file.tex"? Is  
the path recorded, or lost?
