I have MiKTeX 2.9, which comes packaged with LuaTeX version beta-0.70.2-2012060719. I'd like to compile a file using the latest stable version. I've downloaded the binary, but what do I do with it?

Welcome to TeX.SX !. No idea, but may be a feature request like this to author or with TeXLive 2013, it's beta-0.76.0-2013061708 –  texenthusiast Dec 13 '13 at 16:03

Welcome to TeX.SE! Have you tried running the "Update MikTeX" utility? It should give you an option to update lots of packages as well as pretty much the entire LuaTeX subsystem. (There are many packages that go with Lua(La)Tex, e.g., luaotfload. Be sure to update those packages as well, not just the binary.) –  Mico Dec 13 '13 at 16:04
    
I would run the Update from the Maintenance menu. This grabs all possible updates from a repository of your choice and places them in the right folder. One thing: Be careful with updating when you actually work with LaTeX as dependecies between packets can change and render your files not working. –  Chris Dec 13 '13 at 16:18
    
@Chris and Mico (SX won't let me tag both of you), what should I choose as my source? By default it has my local package repository selected (C:\proTeXt\MiKTeX\tm\packages). –  skiasaurus Dec 13 '13 at 16:28

This question appears to be off-topic because it could be solved with an update of MiKTeX. –  Speravir Feb 7 at 22:09
