[AUCTeX-devel] question regarding installation under Windows

I am not a programmer but I require the use of Emacs/auctex in Windows so I can work in latex using voice recognition.


Because I’m not a programmer the issues or questions I may have may be very basic so apologies.


I am following  the detailed instructions for installing auctex found here


So far I have completed successfully steps 1 to 7.  I have a question regarding step 8. Step 8 specifies that you should open “some shell (typically Bash)  capable of running configure”.  As I am working on Windows there is no native bash shell that can run the configure command.  It wasn’t specified but how do you work around this?


Is the only method to complete this step to activate the “window subsystem for Linux” feature in Windows 10? Or is there another method that may be more straightforward?


I felt like I wanted to ask before continuing because I have first-hand experience with the precariousness of installing Linux  software on a Windows machine.  I wasted a lot of time in the past trying to install Vim plug-ins in GVim on Windows.  I eventually give up which is now why I am trying Emacs :-)


Anyway, any feedback would be appreciated!
