Vin had made an experimental 21.5.34 innosetup build for me, back in 2014.
I have been using it since. I have not seen any issues yet, other than that
paren-highlighting does not seem to work.
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.
However, if that assumption is wrong, I would like you to know that a
of a lot of people use xemacs on Windows - maybe you underestimate the
number of such people.
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.
