i can run texexec but will still get 4.0 instead of the more recent
version  i installed into the texmf-local directory.

i can run texexec --make

if i now try to run texexec test.tex
it will stop at the first line:

as what the feature tool request:
could it be possible to have a simple command line program that you
call from within a specific folder and thereby adding or removing this
folder from some of the indicated tex/context path setttings.

e.g. i copy a new version on context into a folder, i cd to the root
of that folder and run 'AddThisContextToTex' and the script will take
care of the rest. or 'AddThisFolderToFontsList'. you get the picture.

believe me, it is so frustrating to know that context is so powerful
and easy to operate, but not being able to get it running in the first

it must be something very simple to solve...

it would be a nice feature to have tex installed based on context
instead of the other way around...
is there a (hidden) feature in texexec that could do that?

thanks again (over and over :-)
