A GNU Emacs binary distribution for users who want to use Emacs natively in 64-Bit Windows (x86_64). This project will focus on providing unmodified, up-to-date (from git master and newest release), and optimized w64 binary builds.
Thanks to the awesome projects MSYS2 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/msys2/) and MinGW-w64 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64) I can bring you a fast, clean, and functional GNU Emacs for Windows.
For details concerning the build, please see the wiki page on https://sourceforge.net/p/emacsbinw64/wiki/Build%20guideline%20for%20MSYS2-MinGW-w64%20system/. 中文版请看这里：
*For Win 8.1 users*: I have just upgraded to Win 8.1 and didn't find problems you met. I suggest you post the detailed information, especially the reproduction steps, to the Discussion part, so that we can help you. Thanks.
- 100% unmodified source code from git master and release version
- Native 64-Bit binary for MS-Windows
- Compiled with optimization
- With JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, SVG, XML2, and GnuTLS support
I installed on Windows 8.1 (all updates installed) with a Core i7 processor. Everything else I tried works fine, but the paste from the Windows Clipboard does not work. By that I mean that if I put something on the clipboard from another Windows application, C-y returns "Kill ring is empty.". Items put on the Kill ring from emacs itself are returned properly. Did anybody else observe this issue? Thank you. Update: This must be caused by something unusual in my system: I have another Windows 8.1 computer which does not show this problem.
Thanks for putting these out there - I installed the 24.4.91 version on Windows 8.1, worked great, with png support.
A COMPLETE Emacs build/distribution that WORKS.
I can't use in win8.1. When I double click runemacs.exe, it always create a dialog "A fatal error has occured".
Great source! I have used several builds from snapshot and pretest. All worked as expected.
