If you are experiencing any problems, even if you think they are of your own making, be sure to report them to address@hidden so that we can explain things better in future.<

So here it goes: I'm trying to get up and running with a TeXLive2007 distribution on WinXP installed in


and with XEmacs-21.4.21 installed in


during the installation of XEmacs I also checked the box for AUCTeX but when I opened a *.tex file the LaTeX and Command menus didn't appear in XEmacs.

I downloaded and followed the instructions as best I could to install with configure and make in a cygwin bash:

address@hidden /cygdrive/d/auctex-11.84
$ ./configure --prefix="D:\\XEmacs" --with-xemacs="/cygdrive/d/XEmacs/XEmacs-21.4.21/i586-pc-win32/xemacs.exe" --with-packagedir="D:\\XEmacs\\xemacs-packages" --with-auctexstartfile="auctex.el" --disable-preview

configure ran without problems (using --with-xemacs="D:\\XEmacs\\Xemacs-21.4.21\\i586-pc-win32\\xemacs.exe" did not work)

make also ran without problems

but make install in the end (how far from the and am I?) produced the following error message

make[1]: *** [install-metadata] Error 255
make[1]: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/d/auctex-11.84'
make: *** [install] Error 2

Still no LaTeX nor Commands menus, LaTeX mode works, so I have syntax higlighting and I can call pdflatex as a shell command but AUCTeX should give me much more, right?

cygwin with non-cygwin xemacs is a problem ? yes, at least in my case but I couldn't tell you why. Maybe you can tell me.

ok, so I try MSYS

here --with-xemacs="D:\\XEmacs\\Xemacs-21.4.21\\i586-pc-win32\\xemacs.exe"
and  --with-xemacs="D:/XEmacs/Xemacs-21.4.21/i586-pc-win32/xemacs.exe"
both work and I hope that my problems will be gone, but the last lines of make install RET read:

Generating autoloads for tex-info.el...
Generating autoloads for tex-jp.el...
Unbalanced parentheses
xemacs exiting
make[1]: *** [install-metadata] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/d/auctex-11.84'
make: *** [install] Error 2

my fault or not ? any help is appreciated
