Hi address@hidden,


I followed these steps

1)      Install emacs

a.       Download zipped file emacs-22.3

b.      Unzip it to C:\Program Files\emacs-22.3

c.       Try it by clicking C:\Program Files\emacs-22.3\bin\runemacs

d.      It works

2)      Install mictex

a.       Download “"Basic MiKTeX 2.7" Installer” from

b.      Install “basic-miktex-2.7.3248” it to C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.7

3)      Install Ghostscript

a.       Download from

b.      Install “gs864w32.exe” to “C:\Program Files\gs”

4)      Install Auctex

a.       Download “auctex-11.85-e22.3-msw” from

b.      Unzip it to “C:\Program Files\emacs-22.3”

5)      Install Cygwin

a.       Have absolutely no idea why, but now it is there


1.       Here comes the tricky part.If AUCTEX is installed, you might still need to activate it, by inserting (load "auctex.el" nil t t) in your user init file.”.

2.       I have no idea what my “user init file”, and a google search did nothing to solve this ( didn’t tell me anything I could understand in 3.5).


4.       All I know is that, when opening emacs, I have the following options: File Edit Options Buffers Tools Help; and none of the extra functions in your screenshots. How in God’s name do I get it to work?
