That's because the precompiled versions are not compiled with the Cygnus
compiler, and I'm not aware that anyone has succeeded in doing so yet.

Just use the normal full DOS/Windows paths, except that you can use /
instead of \.  The NT Emacs mailing list is

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"" with one line of text: "help".
