3.2 How do I install Emacs after unpacking the binary zip?

You can run Emacs without any extra steps, but if you want icons in your Start Menu, or for Emacs to detect the image libraries that are already installed on your system as part of GTK, then you should run the program addpm.exe, which is usually installed into the same bin directory with emacs.exe.
