I trying that now. I am also using the W32 version of > emacs. I use a batch file for JP Software's TCC (the successor to 4NT and 4DOS) command line. I have copied the batch file below, I don't think it would take much editing to make it work with the built-in cmd.exe command processor. When I download a new org-xxx.zip file I just close Emacs and run: org_update xxx and it takes care of the unpacking, batch compiling, installing into my elisp directory and cleaning up temporary files afterwards. You will probably need to change some of the paths (I have Emacs installed in C:\Emacs and my customization directory is D:\.emacs.d I hope that is of some help to you. Tony org_update.btm follows: @ECHO OFF REM Update the Emacs org-mode automatically REM Usage: org_update xxx REM to update to version xxx SETLOCAL SET ORGFILES=org-%1 SET EMACS=C:\emacs\bin\emacs.exe SET EMACS_OPTS=--batch -q -eval "(progn (add-to-list (quote load-path) (expand-file-name \"./lisp/\")) (add-to-list (quote load-path) \"D:/.emacs.d/elisp\"))" -f batch-byte-compile SET ELISPDIR=D:\.emacs.d\elisp SET INFODIR=D:\.emacs.d\info SET DOWNLOADDIR=D:\Downloads\Editors\Emacs\Elisp SET ORGZIPFILE=%ORGFILES.zip REM Unpack the downloaded file in a temp directory CDD %DOWNLOADDIR c:\pacl\paext -o+ -d -p%TEMP\ %ORGZIPFILE CDD %TEMP\%ORGFILES\lisp REM Compile the Elisp sources FOR %f in (org*.el) %EMACS %EMACS_OPTS %f REM Copy parts of the archive to where Emacs can find them COPY org*.el org*.elc %ELISPDIR\ COPY ..\doc\org %INFODIR\ COPY ..\doc\org.pdf ..\doc\orgcard.pdf %INFODIR\ REM Cleanup temp files CDD %TEMP\ DEL %ORGFILES\*.* /s /x /y ENDLOCAL
