The last time I installed TeX-Gyre only two fonts worked and the rest did  
not.

The point is that debugging when things go wrong takes time and some of us  
are just too busy to have to to debug every little thing. It seems to me  
that TeX-Gyre is one of those things that should work out of the box, like  
lm.

Finally, mswincontext.zip is not really "minimal" but "maximal" ;-)  
Updates to TeX-Gyre could be supported as a package a la cont-tmf.zip of  
course.

Best wishes
