Hi Thomas,
I suppose that you had the menu in mind which provides an option "view
logfile".  In this case it makes sense. 

However, when run from the command line it is more desirable if a
program aborts when it encounters an error.

I suggest to just remove the updmap line.  texlinks is not so verbose
that it hurts.

Karl, what do you think?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
