#1925 the doc-folders are in the context search path

ConTeXt (14)

context finds files in the doc-folder of texmf trees. As an example:

I:\Z-Test>context mathtest.tex
This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.60.2-2010100221 (MiKTeX 2.9) (rev 3736)
\write18 enabled.

This can even give trouble during format generation as the doc-folder of circuittikz contains a "context.tex".

I could reproduce the problem (reported on the winedt mailing list) only after an update today where I updated only six miktex-XX-packages packaged on 15 and 16 november but it is possible that it existed already before unnoticed. The search path of luatex seems fine. Tell me if you think that it is a context problem, then I will make a bug report there.

  • Thank you for the report. This is a MiKTeX specific bug. For some reason the ConTeXt search path (defined in miktex\config\context.ini) is not honoured.
