tlmgr has nothing to do with actually running TeX, it's about
dealing with the installation.

If you want TeX to read the directory .. and the directory c:\mydoc, you
can set the TEXINPUTS environment variable (with the trailing semicolon
please, so the system directories get searched).

set TEXINPUTS=..;c:\mydoc;
