The reason for this is hat the TW object was introduced in r538 (btw,
that's the reason you didn't find the launchPdf.js script bundled with
your version of TeXworks). So, in order to use this script, you need to
use a newer version of the program. AFAIK, MiKTeX 2.9 ships with a more
recent version. Alternatively, there are some experimental builds
available on http://web.student.tuwien.ac.at/~e0325258/projects/c/texworks/.
