I have no ConTeXt Standalone in Path, but before I start ConTeXt I 
running the batch file containing:

@echo off
C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe /k C:\context\tex\setuptex.bat C:\context\tex
set MTX_PDFVIEW_METHOD="PDFXCview"

I like install 64bit version, but a while ago I tried to install the 
32-bit version and also without success ...

Link to the installation file is not functional, so I can not try to do 
the installation...

A while ago I tried to install the 32-bit version and also without 
success ...The entire installation (both 32 and 64bit) will take place 
during one minute, which just goes to show that nothing not copied from 
the internet.
