The current version that I have seems to be lates XEmacs for
windows at sourceforgenet.

I have MSYS on the system. I downloaded latex preview, and put all
the files in
Tried running configure from this directory. It didnt detect XEmacs. So
copied the files to
.ie, the directory where xemacs.exe is kept. Xemacs and AuCtex was deteted
now but not ghostview. The following error is seen.
checking for gs... NONE
configure: error: gs not found! Aborting!
You must install Ghostscript for preview to work

What you say above seems to be the problem. If I change the
following line in config.ini
AC_PATH_PROG_REQUIRED(GS, gs, [gs not found! Aborting!
You must install Ghostscript for preview to work.])
to detect gswin32.exe will it work? How do I give a link to gswin32.exe.
My path for gs is C:\gs\gs7.03\bin
