OK, thank you for that feedback/suggestion Siep. If I use a portable
installation, I remember the installer warning me that it might modify
some of my pre-specified locations. In what circumstances would it do
that, and could it still share C:\TeX\Live\TeX-MF\Local, from where my
(mandatory) support for Hebrew originates ? And is there a tracing
option by which I/we might learn more about why TLSHELL is (apparently)
failing to start TLMGR ? I find that if I launch it from the command
line (as "tlshell --debug"), it demands privilege elevation.
