emacs-w64 | 64-Bit GNU Emacs for MS Windows with optimization

Table of Contents

1 PURPOSE

For years I have searched the Internet for the 64-Bit GNU Emacs binary distribution for MS-Windows. Indeed there do have 64-Bit Emacs for MS-Windows, but I don't like them. Most of them are modified or outdated. So I try to compile a up-to-date native 64-Bit GNU Emacs from git master. So what you see is my work.

2 FEATURE

  • 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.

3 SYSTEM REQUIREMENT

Only 64-Bit MS-Windows are supported.

4 DOWNLOAD

5 USAGES

  1. Download the binary package (e.g. emacs-bin-w64-20140402.7z).
  2. Uncompress with 7-Zip or other software you like.
  3. Double-click the runemacs.exe in emacs/bin.

7 KNOWN ISSUES

I have to admit that the present work is unperfect. This build is ONLY tested in my Core i7 Laptop running MS Windows 8.

8 TECHNICAL DETAILS

If you are interested in compiling Emacs yourself, you can find the workflow in the wiki page.

9 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Thank Angelo Grazios for pointing out the DLL problems.
