As far as I'm aware, point and click doesn't, and can't, work on Windows.
for details.  I'd like to raise a bug report for this, so that I
can get the
opportunity to fix it at an appropriate time in the development
cycle. Just
want to check that no-one disagrees and has it working out of the box.

You're referring to point-and-click right from pdf viewer?
Because if you mean Frescobaldi's use of point-and-click as well, i
have to say that it always worked for me on windows.

Correct.  I assume Frescobaldi implements its own point-and-click
helper, which fixes the non-functioning of the as-delivered version.

Frescobaldi has its own viewer.  I have a hard trouble understanding
what you mean by "non-functioning of the as-delivered version".

If you click on one of the embedded links, no file is loaded in any editor. That's a fairly simple definition of "non-functioning". i.e. nothing happens of any use.

point of point-and-click is that textedit:// links get embedded into the
PDF.  That certainly can and does work under Windows.

Agreed.  But they do nothing useful.

The question is how to make the PDF viewer do something, and the answer
for that depends on the PDF viewer.  It is not, as far as I can see,
related to the operating system.  The PDF viewer might delegate the URI
interpretation to some generic mechanism and/or it might have ways to
handle some forms itself when properly configured.

No. It does not depend on the viewer, it depends on the operating system and the installed editors.
