Windows XEmacs “List and Install” Problem

After I installed Windows 7, the package manager in XEmacs stopped working. In particular, the “List and Install” function did not work with the main ftp site (ftp.xemacs.org). The connection to the ftp server could be established, but the packages couldn’t be listed.

Here is the fix that worked on my computer.

1. Customize “efs-ftp-program-name”
2. Change the value from “C:/Windows/SysWOW64/ftp.exe” to the standard setting, which is just “ftp”. And Voila!

I don’t know how it worked. If you know, let me know.
