	No, I don't think so.  Texhash is for updating(in lLinux) after
adding  new input files
	like .sty for .mf.  In miktex, this is done by initexmf (I have
forgotten the command line. You may have to look at the miktex manual
for that.)or  using start->Programs->mitex-> options -> update(or
whatever is appropriate for your installation.) . Kpathsea is also for 
	linux. If you want to update the files list you can use the
above route.  Things may work out fine.
