Hello all,

I got the installation zip file following instructions found in: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/ConTeXt_Standalone#Windows

Unzipped in C:\ConTeXt directory (brand new an empty).

Started command: first-setup.bat --context=current --modules=all

After a couple of minutes: I get:

! LuaTeX error c:/ConTeXt/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/node-shp.lua:58: ta
ble index is nil
stack traceback:
        c:/ConTeXt/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/node-shp.lua:58: in function 'code'
        c:/ConTeXt/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/util-lua.lua:84: in function 'loadedluacode'

        [\directlua]:1: in main chunk.
\registerctxluafile ...ua.registercode("#1","#2")}

l.21 \registerctxluafile{node-shp}{1.001}


and the installation process stops at lua prompt.

I’ve checked that luatex.exe is the one Inside C:\ConTeXt\ tex subdirectory. (C:\ConTeXt\tex\texmf-win64\bin). It’s slightly strange it uses 64 bits exe because I downloaded http://minimals.contextgarden.net/setup/context-setup-mswin.zip

Any hints please ? I am using Windows 8.1.


Best regards
