I am confused by this. I am currently using W32TeX as a minimal TeX
installation [0] that is used by another application (so not TeX Live as
installed by [1]). You can see from the update script [2] that I use
that I download


Are you saying that I should use the files in the TLW64 with this TeX
tree, or download

{dvipdfm-w64,web2c-w64,xetex-w64}.tar.xz and also the web2c-lib.tar.xz
from the above list?
