Tlaunch _as a CTAN package_ is obsolete. There is an updated tlaunch
in TL2023 which is part of the wintools package and which should

As to the script due to lack of feedback, I did not
bother to update or test it for the current TL. If you are actually

side-by-side with 32-bit binaries. Since TL for windows is now
64-bit, this section is now obsolete. Rather than removing the code,
I enclosed it in an 'if 0', i.e. an if false block: it will never be
