Yes, but you have to use the .exe updater ... that is you have to get
the update-tlmgr-latest.exe ...

Karl: We have to push out the critical things soon, otherwise this will
happen with all new installations. 

The wrapper is in bin-texlive.win32 ...

A throaty cough by someone else so timed as to obscure the crucial
part of the rather amusing remark you've just made.
