From: address@hidden To: address@hidden Subject: 24.5; No 64-bit Emacs for Windows while the manual said there is. Date: Sat, 20 Jun 2015 00:18:27 +0800 Message-ID: <address@hidden> --text follows this line--
From the official emacs manual: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/efaq-w32.html
2.1 Where can I download Emacs?
Pre-compiled versions are distributed from ftp.gnu.org mirrors. Emacs binaries are distributed as zip files, digitally signed by the developer who built them. Generally most users will want the file emacs-24.5-bin-i686-pc-mingw.zip for the 32-bit build, and emacs-24.5-bin-x86_64-w64-mingw32.zip for the 64-bit build.
However, there's no 64-bit emacs for windows on http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/
So please provide 64-bit Emacs for Windows, or modify the emacs manual.
(I am using Emacs 64-bit for Windows built by a third-party.) Thank you.
Best regards, Nick
