Dear listmembers,
I've been trying to migrate to the newest version of GNU Emacs - 22.3 unsuccessfully for the last 4 days - it crashes on random intervals b/n 0 and 15 seconds after started all the time. I was a user of Xemacs, but now want to get Emacs to work...
System - Vista SP1.
I've followed all of the installation instructions, have downloaded the zipped binaries from more than one location, have used 2 different archival tools to unzip them, have set the HOME variable to pretty much everything, have run it with and without an .emacs file, have tried just about every option by running emacs.exe from the command prompt, even tried Vincent Goulet's bundle ( and SAME PROBLEM. It just keeps on crashing on and on - with Vista's "GNU Emacs has stopped working... looking for a solution" crap.
Please help, much appreciated! I'll run whatever tests/debuging stuff you need me to...
PS More information if pertinent: the old Emacs 21.3.1 version works like a charm, no trouble with it. Also - idk if this is important, my Account User Control is turned off and I don't think my anti-virus software is causing the problem either. Are there any services that are necessary for emacs to run? I have a few of those disabled...
