Hi there, after some investigation concluded I did not really installed the latest version of ConTeXt properly. This being the cause of many of my previous messages that Patrick, Hans and others (thanks to all !) so kindly replied.
What I have here is a cygwin distro that comes with a texfm distro, in this distro there is ConTeXt, but an older version from what I want installed. So in the texmf tree I put context files. So far so good. But...this cygwin has a texexec shell script in /usr/bin that makes the system to launch a texexec it has in: texfm/context/perltk. I put there the new version of texexec copying into that directory all the texmf/scripts/perl directory that comes in the new version of ConTeXt. Now the new texexec is summoned. Great. I even manage to pass to him the path where to put the en nl and metafun formats (texfm/web2c) and so it does when I asked it: texexec --make --alone en nl metafun But... when trying to do texexec --pdf dummy in /cygdrive/c/documents/versions (a cygwin alias to C:\documents\versions, place where dummy.tex can be found) it says: TeXExec 4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2004 executable : pdfetex format : /cygdrive/c/cygwin/usr/share/texmf/web2c/cont-en inputfile : pvm output : pdftex interface : en current mode : none TeX run : 1 pdfetex: unrecognized option `-fmt=cont-en' Try `pdfetex --help' for more information. return code : 256 run time : 0 seconds total run time : 1 seconds make: *** [pvm.pdf] Error 1 I suspect the pdfetex executable... any ideas? thanks !
