Hi Taco,
Thanks for the hint. TeXLive binary directory and all the ConTeXt script
directory are in windows path and I can run and compile a sample ConTeXt
file from windows command line. Should I copy all those perl and ruby
scripts from their original location to TeXLive's bin folder, although
they are in the Path? 

The problem is that SciTE can't find these
commands. Apparently, installing and configuring SciTE to work in Windows
is not as easy as Linux or other Unix-based OSs.

I have done that already according to what Hans said. I have all
cont-*.properties files in SciTE's path and alson context.properties and
scite-ctx.lua in the same path. I have added the line "import context" to
the end of Global options files.

Still doesn't work. And even when I compile my test file from Windows
command line, some of the fonts are missing in the PDF file.

I really appreciate your patience and time.
