Having successfully installed the latest ConTeXt within TeTeX 3.0
I'm having trouble getting a simple file to process. My test file
simple.tex contains:

 Hello World

Invoking texexec with 'texexec simple.tex' produces the following:

------------------------- START OUTPUT -------------------------
