Hi Keith,

I got it! With the proper setting of paths it works without sourcing setuptex.
Thus I have for my installation of mkii:
----------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash

export PATH=/Volumes/OK/context-minimal/tex/texmf-osx-64/bin:$PATH
texexec --autogenerate --synctex=1 "$1" 
----------------------------------------------

Many thanks again!
Best regards: OK
