EmacsW32's configuration menu horribly broken.

There are several broken portions of the emacsw32's customization menu. 
The parts mentioning ourcomments-ido-ctrl-tab, appmenu-mode, and 
tabkey2-mode, (lines 407, 415, and 416, respectively) need to be 
commented out for the script to run to completion. Ideally, these should 
be properly fixed, but I have no idea how to do that. How do I properly 
fix these options (or is someone else who actually knows how to use 
emacs well enough to not fix it in vim going to try?)

(The original message was sent before I subscribed, so if this doesn't 
get added as a reply on whatever view you use... sorry!)

Yeh, I can confirm this is not just a one-man issue. I have this 
problem, too.

Hi Kyevan

Thanks for letting me know. I wonder what is wrong. It works for me (of 
course ;-)

Looks like I forgot to load some libraries. Can you try putting this in 
your .emacs:

   (require 'ourcomments-util)
   (require 'appmenu)
   (require 'tabkey2-mode)

I will fix this in the next version I upload.

Re: EmacsW32's configuration menu horribly broken.

Eh, the last one should be (require 'tabkey2)

Re: emacsw32: pb with ourcomments-ido-ctrl-tab

I have uploaded a new version of Emacs+EmacsW32 where this problem 
should be gone.

I have this in my .emacs, and it works for me under XP (I'm using
Emacs 21.3, if that matters):

Please help with install problem : elisp stuff not found

Hello,

I downloaded emacs-22.2-bin-i386.zip and unpacked it to a directory
(C:\prog\gnu_emacs).
When I double-click on emacs.exe, I get the error message which you can
see on the
screenshot at this web page:

  http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/408/mwsnapscreenshot006ws3.jpg

As advised by the message, I read README.W32 and found there the
following surprising
sentence:

  " Along with this file should be six subdirectories (bin, etc, info,
  lisp, lock, site-lisp)"

This is certainly not the case: The zip file contains all files flat, no
directories.

Next I observed that emacs looks for the el files in a certain search
path, which
does not exist on my system (i.e. C:\emacs etc.), so my guess is that
one has to
set some environment variable to denote the emacs base directory.
Unfortunately,
README.W32 does not say anything about this topic, and also this would
not explain
the missing directories (bin, etc, info and so on).

What software did you use to unpack the zip file? The zip file on the 
official FTP site does indeed contain subdirectories, but in some 
unpacking software you may need to explicitly tell it to build the 
directory tree.

I think this is a fallback for when the directory ..\lisp (relative to 
emacs.exe) does not exist.
If you have installed a very old version of Emacs before (19.x, and 
maybe 20.1/20.2), you may need to run addpm.exe to update old hardcoded 
paths in the registry, but as a fresh install running addpm.exe is optional.

No, it doesn't.  Which program did you use to unpack the zip archive?
I'm guessing that you need to use another program, or set the options
of the one you use to preserve the zip archive's directory structure.
