1.2 Which versions of Windows are supported?

Emacs 27.1 is known to run on all versions of Windows 9X from Windows 98 onward, and all versions of the NT family starting from NT 4.0; this includes all the modern versions from Windows XP and on. The Windows port is built using the Win32 API and supports most features of the X version, including variable width fonts, images and tooltips.

Emacs on Windows can be compiled as either a 32-bit or a 64-bit executable, using the MinGW GCC compiler and development tools.
