There is problem with handling ghostscript. Ghostscript gui opens three 
times, one time with commands help, and error is displayed in 
minibuffer: "Your version Ghostscript does not appear to support the 
image type -sDEVICE=png16m. The command "gs -h" lists the available 
devices." when it does support it. maybe if I could use setup file it 
would work, but it gives error: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil. I 
also had to correct miktex path in this function, but without 
modification this error occurs too

Overall, configuration on windows is a pain. manually installing 
packages in miktex and ghostscript (not that bad, but I had to dig to 
find that's neccesary), wondering what code actually should be put in 
init.el, finding and moving files from maxima installation to site-lisp, 
adding installation pathes to path environment variable because 
setup-imaxima-imath.el is not working...

Plots produce output but it's not inline in emacs buffer, but gnuplot 

My current path to miktex binary is: 

My init.el config for maxima:
