Ok, sounds good - so i will try to use it. Could you give me a short introduction what are the steps i have to do (or at least a link where this is described), so something like this:
1. Ensure that cl.exe and nmake.exe are in your PATH
2. checkout latest CVS sources from...
3. use the build-package by calling M-x ... from your running XEmacs
Would be nice if you could give such an instruction-list, so i can build XEmacs 21.15 in an efficient way and do not waste time by try&error... For me it is importane to test ECB as best as possible with current flavors of (X)Emacs - at least with current released flavors ;-) But i know that many people use beta-versions, so i do also some tests with them. fortunately there are binaries of current GNU CVS-Emacs available (at least every 2 month they get updated) so i can test with this version with many effort... and because i already test ECB with CVS-GNU-Emacs i think XEmacs should not be discriminated ;-))

Should be possible to install a Microsoft-Compiler - which version do i need??

Fine - so please come into Carl-Wery-Street 43, 81739 Munich and bring me a cd with an windows executable of XEmacs 21.15.XXX ;-)) I'm just joking........
