comment \documentclass: undefined control sequence
You don't say what your editing environment is, but you are trying to compile a LaTeX document using ConTeXt (which is not LuaLaTeX). So you need to compile your file with LuaLaTeX, and then things should work.

comment Formatting footnotes as a table (not footnotes for tables!)
I don't think there's a way to put them all into one table, so yes, you do have to set the column widths manually. But having a constant size from page to page will probably look better anyway. Since you found this answer to have solved your problem, it's helpful to accept it by clicking the check mark next to the answer.

comment Is there a way to find out how long it took for my document to compile?
@Zev since Windows doesn't have an exact parallel to the unix time command, it's not so obvious how to do this in Windows. There are a bunch of suggestions here: How to measure execution time of command in Windows command line. I don't know how easy any of these would be to integrate with TeXnicCenter.

Is there anything that ConTeXt can't do? :-)
