When I typeset the following project, it seems that the products aren't being found. I can typeset the product itself without any trouble, but typsetting the project as a whole doesn't generate a PDF because , I assume, it can't find the products.

% Sam.tex
\environment Style
\startproject Sam
    \product Introduction

% Introduction.tex
\environment Style
\project Sam
\startproduct Introduction
    \component Section1

% Section1.tex
\environment Style
\project Sam
\product Introduction
\startcomponent Section1
    Some content...

All files are, for simplicity, in the same directory. I have tried other directory structures, making the appropriate changes in the environment file.

I recently updated my context version and now none of my projects typeset.

Any suggestions?

A project cannot be typeset, only products and components. The mechanism was recently changed from a tolerant to a more strict version that now causes your problem.

So what purpose do projects serve if you can't typeset them? Incidentally, it does typeset. It just doesn't resolve the products. – Doug Moore Oct 24 '11 at 19:51
To quote a mail of Hans: “Projects are just there to help clever editors to identify products.” – Marco Oct 24 '11 at 19:54
