Thank you for your report.

If this Emacs is a native Windows port (as opposed to the Cygwin
port), _and_ if it was compiled by the MinGW GCC compiler (as opposed
to the Microsoft Visual C), then you can find a version of GDB that
can debug it here:


You can find out how was Emacs built by typing "M-x emacs-version RET".
