Glad to hear that.  For me, even mouse works and I can choose items in
the menu bar with it (well, I could if I wanted to and don't need F10).

I'm not sure if I understand your expectation here.  For me, I can do
"emacs -nw" in a shell, open a .tex file, compile it with synctex
activated (C-c C-c), start a Win32 viewer (in my case SumatraPDF) from
Emacs (With AUCTeX, it is with C-c C-v), double-click a text position in
the viewer and Emacs jumps to that position.  The config in the viewer

Z:\path\to\emacs\bin\emacsclientw.exe -n --alternate-editor="" +%l "%f"

My understanding is that emacsclientw connects to the server it finds.

What is the use-case you have in mind?

P.S. I probably should change that config to

Z:\path\to\emacs\bin\emacsclientw.exe -n --alternate-editor=runemacs +%l "%f"

which is more convenient.

Best, Arash
