There are ways to start emacs without using EmacsW32.  I believe the -a option in emacsclient now works correctly.

What are the proper exit statues you are talking about?



I have also come up with a method to start emacs, register a few things like right-click edit with Emacs and org-protocol links, and then remove these registry settings to run emacs in a portable manner.  I have also made this distribution a cross-platform emacs that works on my usb key on either a mac or windows machine.  The sources are at  It is in a pre-release state.  If you are interested, I can send you some binaries.

I haven't been able to use EmacsW32 for awhile since I don't typically have administrator rights and can't install InnoSetup files.  I found out I could extract them after I built my solution.

Hi Lennart; long-time EmacsW32 user here, as well as org-mode (mostly for doc writing).  Last year though I switched back to the GNU builds to get on the latest Emacs versions.  The only thing I really miss from EmacsW32 is the improvements in emacsclient, to auto-start emacs if it's not already running, and how it returns proper exit statuses.


What else is in EmacsW32 that you're thinking about that helps with org-mode?
