?? Batch file equivalent to what?

tm_axiom.exe is **not** TeXmacs! You need to install
TeXmacs separately. See:

There is more information about the TeXmacs interface for
Axiom and specifically Axiom on Windows here:

Why do you say they are "apparently incompatible"? WinTeXmacs
should work wint Axiom for Windows "right out of the box".

No, this is not done at all in the current Windows build of Axiom.

No. Niether the pre-compiled nor the current Windows sources
for Axiom support sockets via the old Axiom-specific code.
There is some (experimental) support for native GCL socket
support, but this is not used by Axiom.

Well as I said previously, the Axiom website

has a lot of "answers". If you find places where it is deficient,
please feel free to add additional information - this is a
community-run wiki (editable website).
