This looks fine. I believe that fc-cache now is configured

As a workaround, remove or comment out lines containing texmf-dist
in the file G:/TL20080724/texmf-var/fonts/conf/fonts.conf

Do fc-cache and fc-list now behave correctly, and would xetex still
be useful to you with this configuration?

Please answer to the list since I cannot fix problems with fc-cache

1. The current version 20080725 works well under Windows Vista. Many Thanks!
  2 .However, the same problem occurs under Windows XP. I found that there are only 3 folders in  texmf-var/fonts/: map, pk, and tfm. That is, there is not a folder named texmf-var/fonts/conf
  3. I COPY files in the image to a SD card which is writable. Then I run tl-portable under Windows vista. It generates necessary files/folders on the SD card. After that, it is usable with Windows XP.

  I do not know what do you mean. Of course, xetex is very useful.
