Hi David,

first of all, this is not the right list to ask these questions, it
os for the *development* of TeX and related programs, not for questions
concerning installations. You will be much better of asking at
comp.text.tex, where many people regularly answer.

Or asking at the tex-live mailing list at tug.org, which is responsible
for the TeX Live development.

Yeah, texdoctk does not support spaces in paths, AFAIR.
You should have used the default installation path we offer, namley
c:\texlive\2011 or changed it to d:\texlive\2011.

Yes you can, but texdoctk does not support it.

YOu can use the command line (cmd shell) and
to search and view documents, that *should* work, but I cannot guarantee.
