I am learning to use ConTeXt (after EuroTeX where I discovered it -- 
even I did know about its existence before).
As I have had problem installing using the minimals installer (problem 
with rsynch unable to link) I installed a copy of the installation of 
Mari in
and I use the setupcontext.bat file by:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe /k C:\Programmes\Context\setuptex.bat (I 
have mikTeX in parallel).

For the editor, of course I did choose TeXworks which I installed in:

It works (Mark IV), but using --synctex=1 (or -1) or \synctex=1 (or-1) 
doesn't work "No synctex data available".
I am under Windows XP and there is no accented characters in any of the 
path involved.
