[NTG-context] Installing VSCode extension?

Thank you very much, but in fact that script file "vscode-context.cmd"
really just contains the same command for installing extensions as I quoted
above - and so produces the same errors.  Maybe I'll go back to trying
SciTe - I gave it a bit of a go, but wasn't successful.  Of all the
information on the context-wiki, and the Pragma webpage - where would I go
to find the most up-to-date information about configuring an editor to work
with ConTeXt in Windows?

Thanks again,
Alasdair
