work for you?
The instructions (based on the non-free Visual Studio 6 - what're you
staring at? It was released in 1998!) work for me. If someone wants
to update the instructions, patches will be reviewed and approved. :-)

Would it be possible to fix this, and release an official 21.5.34 beta
innosetup build ?
There was one more request from me at the time - to dust off the build
instructions for a native X86 build using free tools (including free
versions of Microsoft tools), so that people can download and build binaries
easily. May I raise the same request again ?
Thanks a lot.

Dear XEmacs Developers,
I recently got a large roundtuit dropped in my lap (my startup company
imploded), so I've spent a few days working on XEmacs native Windows

Your assumption is correct, but I am the only someone who builds these
kits. I will try to make a setup kit for every release, but it is
difficult for me to know how much time I will have for making setup
kits in between releases.

Dear Biswajit - thank you for your kind words. They certainly made me
feel like my efforts in this area have been well worthwhile.
I have re-made setup kits for 21.4.22, 21.5.34 and 21.4 latest and
21.5 latest. I will upload them this afternoon to ftp.xemacs.org
I will be sending a small patch to XEmacs-patches to work around a
couple of difficulties building without TLS on native Windows. I have
not attempted to build with TLS as of yet.
