Did you install ConTeXt manually or using the MiKTeX Package Manager?
If you used MPM, this should be considered a bug that you can report at
I know that kpsewhich doesn't support "--engine". maybe "--alias"
could work? To fix it you need to edit texexec.pl ...

.efmt is OK. It's because we are no using pdfeTeX instead pdftex as
Sorry for the late reply - you may have solve the issue alreay.
