comment How do I debug my emacs crash on Windows?
See also yoo2080.wordpress.com/2013/10/03/… - tips on using debug-on-quit and debug-on-entry under windows. Or chemie.fu-berlin.de/chemnet/use/info/elisp/elisp_16.html - good info on debugging elisp.

comment How do I debug my emacs crash on Windows?
Found another suggestion - toggle debug-on-quit then hit C-g when it hangs and supposedly we should get a backtrace that might help diagnose the hang. Or try starting emacs from terminal/cmd and might get console output when trying to quit.

comment How do I debug my emacs crash on Windows?
I'm getting emacs 23 on Win7 hanging on exit (I suspect my use of org-mode and leaving it running while I sleep the laptop and wake it daily), so I'm interested in the same thing. PDBs would be great to use VS or WinDbg - and while I could build from source, I'd rather try to the prebuilt one. But if there aren't symbols available, I may have to build or try Justin's other debugging suggestions and see if they can work on hangs.

comment Hunspell - Can't open affix or dictionary files for dictionary named en_US
.oxt files are just ZIP files. You can change the extension and open them and retrieve the files. If you do that, you can stay up to date by watching the extension page for updates.

comment Can colors used in default MSBUILD logger be modified?
The example to write your own logger looks understandable, I'll have to look at that too. Thanks for the link.

Thanks. I was afraid of that. (But not everyone likes black console windows ... :) Maybe in a future version. I do like the colored output, so I'd prefer not to disable it, just change it. I'll try KMoraz's powershell script and see how that works for me.

Possibly. How would that work for this? Some way to modify or do a color shift ("make all cyan output to the console be blue"?)
