Change your build commands from this:

mcc -o contour.exe

mcc -o delaunay.exe
mcc -o mandelbrot.exe :

The reason is an easy-to-overlook aspect of the Install[] function that is
invoked by the ExtendGraphics` packages.  You'll find it in the fine print
for the Install[] reference guide entry

FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["RefGuide", "Install"]]

Therein you'll read the following:

o Install["name`"] searches all directories on $Path for a file or
directory called name.exe.

The ExtendGraphics` packages call Install[] with context names as
shown above.  Because your filenames do not end with .exe, the kernel
reports that the binaries cannot be found.
