But what if it's not part of the tree? For example

> Acrobat.lnk  cow.pdf

Now you will say, "Why not use texmfstart --file=showcase.pdf  

Answer: Because texmfstart always resizes the acrobat window, and I want  
to keep the relative positions of my editor and viewer the same at all  
times. (of course showcase.pdf is full screen-mode but the restore  
position is still resized). This is also why I don't use the --autopdf  

If one opens Acrobat with a link file this does not happen: the relative  
position generally stays the same as when it was last closed. If I make  
LNK executable in System Properties then I can use the following batch file

Acrobat.lnk %*

which will start its argument without resizing the window. So what I need  
is a batch file such that, from a console, I can say

Acrobat.bat cow.pdf

and C:\context will be searched for the file.

How can I do this?

I hope this is clearer. I wrote the question more abstractly because there  
could be many programs one may want to operate on the context tree.
