about it. First check the file etc/PROBLEMS and the FAQ on the web
page above to see if the bug is already known and if there are any
workarounds. If not, then check whether the bug has something to do
with code in your .emacs file, e.g. by invoking Emacs with the "-q
--no-site-file" options.
If you decide that it is a bug in Emacs that might be specific to the
Windows port, send a message to the help-emacs-windows@gnu.org
mailing list describing the bug, the version of Emacs that you are
using, and the operating system that you are running on (Windows NT,
95 or 98 including service pack level if known). If the bug is
related to subprocesses, also specify which shell you are using (e.g.,
include the values of `shell-file-name' and `shell-explicit-file-name'
in your message).
If you think the bug is not specific to the Windows port of Emacs,
then it is better to mail the bug report to bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org so
that it will be seen by the right people. If Emacs has been set up to
send mail, you can use the command M-x report-emacs-bug to create and
send the bug report, but in some cases there is a function to report
bugs in a specific package; e.g. M-x gnus-bug for Gnus, M-x
c-submit-bug-report for C/C++/Java mode, etc.
with code in your .emacs file, e.g. by invoking Emacs with the "-Q"

Use the built in bug reporting functionality in Emacs so that it
will be seen by the right people. You can use the command M-x
report-emacs-bug to create and send the bug report, but in some

e.g. M-x gnus-bug for Gnus, M-x c-submit-bug-report for C/C++/Java
