I just installed the TL2009 pretest on Win32. I wanted to update the
packages from when I downloaded the repository, so I set the location
in tlmgr to  http://ftp.math.utah.edu:80/pub/texlive/tlnet and did
tlmgr update -list. It listed packages tlmgr update -all warned me to
install the latest tlmgr. I downloaded update-tlmgr-latest.exe from
the pretest repository and installed it. I then tried tlmgr update
-list and get the following error message:

I had no problems doing something similar under Linux and MaxOSX. Any

Thanks for your hard work.
