Miktex doesn't have luatex 0.76. And actually doesn't intend to
update until version 0.80:

To quote Christian on the mailing list:

"Usually only x.x0 versions of LuaTeX are included in the MiKTeX 
distribution. See http://luatex.org/roadmap.html:

'...major releases (x.x0 versions) are stable enough to be used for 
production work...'"

Is a newer version really necessary?
