Trying to gain further insights into the following, I though to see what options "TLshell" would accept.  As it did not seem to recognise "[-]-help" or "[-]-?", I thought to try "TeXdoc TLshell".  It said nothing.  Puzzled, I tried "TeXdoc XeTeX", which I have used many many times with previous versions of TeX Live. Again, it did nothing.  Cany anyone offer any insights into this very disturbing behaviour, please ?  And is "TLMGR.bat" still supported, or should it be removed from the distribution ?

Still unable to launch the TeX Live Manager (TL-2019, pre-test) as myself (see screenshotbelow & attached); it will launch successfully only as Administrator.  Since I last reported this during this year's pre-test phase, I have :

  *   Re-ownered C:\TeX to myself
  *   Granted owner full control over C:\TeX and all descendants thereof
  *   Migrated all TeX Live installations from 2008 to 2017 to C:\TeX\Legacy\<year> (I have no earlier installations installed)
  *   Migrated the current TeX Live installation (2018) to C:\TeX\Live
  *   Installed TeX Live 2019 (pre-test) in C:\TeX\Lambda

I investigated Siep's suggestion to install TeX Live 2019 (pre-test) in portable mode but was not happy with the paths that it proposed, and was not certain whether if I modified those paths it would still be "portable" within the meaning of the Act.
