Command line method

Download context-setup-mswin.zip and unzip to a <directory> where you
want to install ConTeXt. It is recommended that you choose a
 that does not have a space in its full path. Then open cmd.exe, go to
the installation <directory> and run

#> first-setup.bat

#>cd <directory>/tex
#>call setuptex.bat

Next, save in test.tex this line

\startext\input tufte\stoptext

and then
#>context test.tex

You should have test.pdf .

Hans develops context-mkiv in synch with luatex under windows7,
so I already know that my builds are not ok because they don't work
with minimals.
