Suppose no. It was a log file.

I have MikTex 2.7. I uninstalled and installed again because it  
couldn't build the format for ConTeXt. Now it builds but texexec  
--version does not produce any output. MikTex help list says one  
should have perl and ruby - which I have (I checked the environment  
variables and ruby is not there; this can be the cause but I don't  
know how to add it). Anyway I will stick to Linux first.

Thanks for your help. I will try one of those solutions.
A final remark. I didn't say this (bellow quoted), it is written in  
one of the manuals (mp-cb-en.pdf), page 4:
