IIRC correctly this bundle was assembled together some years ago by the
AUCTeX team.  It was a good idea then, but in the meanwhile, do you
think it is still worth the effort?  The latest official Emacs binaries
for Win are available from:


Required libs (not only for image support) and other bins (e.g.,
hunspell) are available from here:


A 64-bit version with all required dll's is available here:


Latest AUCTeX is available via ELPA.

I think that most users would go a route mentioned above and leave your
package alone since they have to grab other libs from other sources
anyways (and they also get the latest version).

Again, please don't get me wrong, I do appreciate your work on this.  I
am just asking if users honor this enough.

Best, Arash
