Now I put the files alongside and ran mtxrun —generate. It did not work. The test file and resulting error are below. I used ConTeXt  ver: 2022.12.29 14:32 LMTX  fmt: 2022.12.29  int: english/english. I can try with the latest LMTX later today. The test file works with TeXLive 2022



\usemodule[pgfplots]			% PGFPlots module for graphs


	\draw (0, 0) circle (3cm);
