Uwe, it seems you have to wait for new binaries.  The reason nothing
works is that the files from texmf has been moved to texmf-dist.  The
kpathsea version in TL-2012 doesn't have texmf-dist/web2c in its
search path.  Hence texmf.cnf isn't found.

If you want to experiment though you can copy
texmf-dist/web2c/texmf.cnf to bin/win32/ .  But it doesn't make sense
to test the old binaries anyway.

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