I installed ConTeXt in 2009 in my laptop and wrote some documents. Now I have installed ConTeXt in other computer and tried to process some of those documents but it doesn't work. It looks that there is something wrong with Metapost/Metafun. I have tried a simple program like \starttext Testing

Sorry, that's right, it works. I forgot the definition. I have been trying some things before. In fact the problem is this: \starttext Testing \startuseMPgraphic{gh} textX:=87.51u; textY:=96.31u; pic:=thelabel.urt(btex {Test} etex scaled 1.00,(0,0)); draw pic shifted (textX, textY);
