Re: how can I install version 1.3.2?

The problem I've been having is that gdb won't direct stdout and stderr to
the gdb console frame - it pops up a dos window instead.  I mention this to
you because I saw a reference you made to a very similar problem and you
seemed to know how to fix it.
I tried starting xemacs with your "run" program, but it didn't fix the

I'm glad to try to help work through this problem, but I've got to use gdb
for my work.  Either I get it to work again or I start developing using
VC++.  My other alternative is to go back to Solaris/xemacs.

Thanks for any help you can offer,
