gswin32c, but that's nothing that one could not put into tex-mik.el or
tex-fptex.el if necessary.

Could it be that my TeXLive-Distribution was coming with a preinstalled Emacs? This was the version I've worked a long time with and AUCTeX was included. This was a quite good solution for the first time using TeX on a Windows PC because I have nothing to know how to do an installation of Emacs under Windows.

On the other hand Uwe Siart's article was quite fine although it is written in German and could perhaps be somehow like a reference.

Best regards
