Can you please check/compare the values with the sones below? I did
not put any ini file anywhere, though I had some issues with formats
(restarting the program helped).

http://wiki.contextgarden.net/MikTeX#Make_formats

Make formats

    * Go to Start Menu -> MikTeX 2.7 -> Settings -> Formats -> New ...

Format key: 	ConTeXt 	(could be anything)
Format name: 	cont-en 	(could be anything)
Compiler: 	pdftex
Input file name: 	cont-en.tex
Description: 	ConTeXt format 	(could be anything)
(uncheck) 	Exclude this format ... 	

    * Choose the newly created format and Build it.
    * For mptopdf uncheck the box for excluding as well.
