Trying "TeXdoctk" after a portable-mode install, I am told :

This is expected. We believe that doc.html in the root of the
installation is a good alternative for searching for documentation.
Thank you for that feedback, Siep. Unfortunately launching C:\TeX\Lambda\doc.html, then following the link to XeTeX and clicking on XeTeX itself takes me to a directory listing:
In TeX Live 2018, texdoctk was fully functional, which is how/why I was able to recommend it to Michael Barr when he needed a GUI route to "TeXdoc enumerate" :
Start / Computer / C-Drive (probably) / texlive (probably) / 2018 (probably) / bin / win32 /
Double-click on "texdoctk.exe" / Database search / Enter "enumerate" / Hit <return> / Select second entry = "Extended enumeration style ( enumerate)".
In TeX Live 2019, that is no longer possible. Has TeXdoctk been intentionally disabled, or is it simply an unfortunate side-effect of some deeper change ?
By the way: I am still tinkering with the windows wrapper for
tlshell, which may or may not solve your problem.
Thank you, I appreciate that.
