Whenever I hit C-c C-c on any .tex file I get the error message:
LaTeX: problems after [0] pages
After hitting C-c C-l the message in the window is:
Running `LaTeX' on `proba' with ``latex  "\nonstopmode\input{proba.tex}"''
The syntax of the command is incorrect. (in Hungarian)

LaTeX exited abnormally with code 1 at Thu Oct 25 15:57:56

Does the command work directly in cmd.exe?
Yes. When in the directory, where proba.tex resides
latex  "\nonstopmode\input{proba.tex}" and
cmd.exe /c latex  "\nonstopmode\input{proba.tex}"

also works perfectly from the command shell.

`TeX-shell' is a variable declared in Lisp.
  -- loaded from "tex-buf"

Value: "C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\cmd.exe"

Name of shell used to parse TeX commands.

`TeX-shell-command-option' is a variable declared in Lisp.
  -- loaded from "tex-buf"

Value: "/c"

Shell argument indicating that next argument is the command.

That looks okay, but I am currently not running Windows, so I cannot
verify it.

If you do `M-x shell RET' you should get the Windows prompt as a
shell.  Does the latex command above work in that shell?
Maybe I am doing something wrong, but after M-x shell RET the shell window came up immediately with the message "Process cmd.exe finished", and
there was no process in the window, so I couldn't try to run the latex command.
Unless you are a die-hard XEmacs user you might also check out the
pre-compiled Emacs version downloadable from the AUCTeX site.
I tried Xemacs first because I wanted to use R, Sweave and LaTeX together, and for a lamer like me, Xemacs seemed to be more tailor-made. I am sure it is possible to customize GNU Emacs, but I don't (yet) know Lisp, so it would take a whole lot of time. However, I installed the Emacs-AUCTeX bundle and it works perfectly, but I would still be happy if I could make XEmacs work.
