I sent mail to maintainer of Emacs FAQ for Windows


and to maintainers of Emacs FAQ


but it seems that these e-mails are dead. Bellow is mail, which tries
to clarify use of gnuserv under Windows. I hope I did not wrote something
stupid and that it may help.

With regards, Gregor

Subject: NT emacs FAQ: Gnuserv

I was reading on how to set up gnuserv with NT emacs and found FAQ at


but it was not much of a use, since forward link to 


is not very helplful in description of setting things up. Here I provide
a simple step by step instructions I followed under Windows XP. You can 
add them to FAQ so others can benefit from it.

1. Get emacs and check that it runs as it should. I installed it in
   'C:\Prorams\emacs\emacs'. Note that I did not used default place for
   programs, since there is a space character in it and I don't like it.

2. I usually create a desktop and a quick launch icon, which points     
   to 'C:\Programs\emacs\emacs\bin\runemacs.exe'.
3. Get gnuserv i.e. 


   I unziped it in 'C:\Programs\emacs\gnuserv'

4. Add the following code to your '.emacs' file. Note that "load" process
   can also be done in other more "emacs" alike way.

   (load "c:/Programs/emacs/gnuserv/gnuserv.el")
   (require 'gnuserv)

    and optionally additional line

   (setq gnuserv-frame (selected-frame)) ;; open buffer in current frame

5. Create file associations, where application is

   Additionally one can create a "Send To" entry by adding a '*.bat' file, 
   say 'sendToEmacs.bat' to 'Send To' folder under 'Documents and Settings'. 
   The content of this file should be

   C:\Programs\emacs\gnuserv\Release\gnuclientw.exe "%1".

Lep pozdrav / With regards,
