Bingo. I hadn't seen this, there is a mkluatexfontdb.exe in the bin
folder of the w32tex package. I hadn't expected that because the
documentation says you should run the *script*. An .exe is not a
script for me. So I would suggest to write something like this:

To update the database manually, run the script
mkluatexfontdb.lua that is included in this package either by
calling the wrapper application mkluatexfontdb.exe or with
"texlua.exe mkluatexfontdb.lua"
