On Windows some things are different and there is an extra section in
the manual.  texconfig is the a UNIX shell script.  On Windows you
have to use the installer instead.

Some post-installation steps are done by the installer itself at the
end of the installation process.  If you launch the installer again,
it will start in maintenance mode.  Then you can configure your
system.  The easiest way to start the installer is to insert the DVD.
You can probably start it from the program menu, but if you want to
add packages you need the DVD anyway.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
