On I read that Miktex version of Context is broken. I also read Mojca's workaround, pasted below. Has anyone tried this and does it work? Any conflicts or difficulties?

Second question: Can I get mptopdf to work in the Miktex tree without installing Context?

Mojca's workaround:

If you still want to run ConTeXt on MikTeX while it has been removed, you may create a file texmfstart.bat in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.7\miktex\bin with the content:

@echo off
ruby "C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.7\scripts\context\ruby\texmfstart.rb" "%*"

and extract into C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.7. Then, update filename database and generate formats, and everything should work again.
