Links during my adventures to configure Emacs for Windows 7

The goal is the make emacs a more comfortable experience than VS2013 on Windows 7.

  1. First install the latest version of emacs using
  2. Then install the following packages (emacs v. >=24)

Found solutions to problems that arose:

  • When using C-c C-c to compile, there were some problems with the paths.
    • First I had to setup PATH variables for MSBuild.exe and Fsc.exe, and then figure out how emacs prefers paths with spaces in Windows.
  1. To build F# projects, we want to use MSBuild.exe
  2. To compile F# projects, we want to use Fsc.exe
  3. TODO: Look into F# FAKE
