I just tried on Linux with a simple test document, and it worked for me.
Since MiKTeX 2.7 should in principle support synctex as well, you should
only be a tiny step away from success ;).
So, few questions to begin with:
1) Did synctex work for you before (for other documents, e.g. simple
pdflatex'ed ones)?
2) When your pdf is opened, does the pdf's status bar say it found a
synctex file or does it say it didn't find such a file (this message
only flashes briefly)?
3) Do you have a file mytexfile.synctex created alongside the pdf (where
mytexfile is the name of your tex file, of course)?

If you only get a mytexfile.synctex.gz, and the pdf window complains
about not finding any (useful) synctex data, you could try replacing
"-synctex=1" by "-synctex=-1" in the .bat file to generate uncompressed
synctex data.
