OK. Removed quotes, so texmfstart.bat now reads:

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

This now works:

$ C:\temp>texmfstart texexec --help
TeXExec | version 6.2.0 - 1997-2006 - PRAGMA ADE/POD

TeXExec | --check        check versions

TeXExec | --pdfcombine   combine multiple pages
TeXExec | --pdfcopy      copy pages from file(s)
TeXExec | --pdfselect    select pages from file(s)
TeXExec | --pdfsplit     split file in pages
TeXExec | --pdftrim      trim pages from file(s)
TeXExec | --process      process file
TeXExec |
TeXExec | --help --all   shows all switches

However, I cannot make the formats. Going to Miktex 2.7->Settings->Formats, attempting to build cont-en results in, even though I've copied cont-en.ini into the directory expected by Miktex 2.7.

Creating the cont-en.pdftex format file...
Running pdftex...
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592-1.40.4 (MiKTeX 2.7) (INITEX)

entering extended mode

("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.7\tex\context\config\cont-en.ini")

! Emergency stop.

<*> cont-en.ini


No pages of output.

Transcript written on cont-en.log.

makefmt: pdftex failed on cont-en.ini.
initexmf.EXE: The operation failed for some reason.

So, here is where I stand.
