Hmm, try making .LNK files executable in Control Panel, System, Advanced,  
Environment Variables.

The reason I use acrobat.lnk is because it does not rezize my acrobat  
window the way texexec's autopdf option does. I want my Acrobat window to  
be positioned in the same place and size whenever I open it.

Or maybe Vista64 has a different way of handling symlinks.

Go to Plugins>NppExec>Advanced Options, left side. Then you can add the  
scripts to the menu. I discovered this myself just now ;-)

I guess you then use the shortcut mapper to give shortcuts to the new menu  

I'll try to find some time to do this and post an updated package sometime  
soon... Then the Run menu items for ConTeXt will be deprecated or removed.
