When I compile a document on a certain MikTeX installation on Windows with microtype 2.7 (determined in MikTeX Package Manager) using lualatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "mwe".tex I get the following warning:

    Package microtype Warning: You don't seem to be using either pdftex, luatex, or
xetex.
(microtype) `microtype' only works with these engines.
(microtype) I will quit now..

Compiling the same document with TeXLive, microtype 2.7 and lualatex does not give me a warning.

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{microtype}
\listfiles
\begin{document}
\blindtext
\end{document}

pdflatex and xelatex seem to work in MikTeX. What might cause this problem and how can I fix it?

Edit:

Here is a list of the used files:

 *File List*
 article.cls    2014/09/29 v1.4h Standard LaTeX document class
  size10.clo    2014/09/29 v1.4h Standard LaTeX file (size option)

    can you show the log, in particular exact luatex and microtype versions? – David Carlisle Sep 28 '17 at 22:28
  • The version in the file list is somehow older than in the Package Manager. After an update in the Admin and user Package Manager everything works fine. – Benjamin Sep 29 '17 at 11:10

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it was solved by an update. – TeXnician Sep 29 '17 at 14:34
