I have a tex file that you can use for testing. It reliably produces a

but I doubt if that matters.) Here are the detailed steps.

May you describe :

1) how you build auctex-11.84;
2) how you install auctex 11.84;
3) how you configure emacs/auctex to use MiKTeX-2.6.

Have you the Cygwin teTeX packages installed ? Or only MiKTeX ?

I downloaded the "unix-style" version of auctex from

and followed the installation instructions (configure, make, make install). I did this as a user with administrator privileges. No special configuration was needed to make auctex use miktex, since miktex is the only version of tex I have installed. So auctex simply finds miktex's executables in my path. I did have to do a little fiddling to make previewing work right. Here are the relevant lines from my .emacs:

(load "auctex.el" nil t t)
(require 'tex-mik)
(setq TeX-output-view-style (quote (("^dvi$" "^pstricks$\\|^pst-\\|^psfrag$" "dvips %d -o && cygstart %f") ("^dvi$" "." "yap -1 %dS %d") ("^pdf$" "." "cygstart %o") ("^html?$" "." "cygstart %o"))))
(setq TeX-view-style (quote (("^epsf$" "cygstart %f") ("." "yap -1 %dS %d"))))

If I remember correctly, the main thing was to take the default settings and replace "start" by "cygstart" in a few places.
