The kit is available from
This kit is a test version that includes more packages than were
available in the official 21.4.19 release kit and allows the user the
choice of which packages to install. Also, this setup kit warns the
user if EMACSPACKAGEPATH is set in the Windows registry (both the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER hierarchies are checked) and
allows the user the option of deleting EMACSPACKAGEPATH. In addition,
there are a small number of patches which will eventually appear in
the XEmacs 21.4.20 release.
