I agree that most Windows users expect this and it would be nice to
have such an installer for Emacs as well.  OTOH, experienced
users/admins might prefer ZIPs because this makes sure that the
installed files are located in a given directory and not spread across
the system.  Another advantage is the ability to run the application
"without installation" directly from an USB stick.  (I remember such
considerations for Mozilla products, "portable Firefox", "portable
Tunderbird").  So it might be good to offer ZIP _and_ installer

If there's no problem WRT license issues, I think it would make much
sense to include the image support DLLs in the official Emacs
distribution for windows.  Without these DLLs, Emacs' tool bar really
looks antiquated.  

Bye, Reiner.
