An additional note: at least in the past, you did
not need to actually install GNU Emacs on Windows.  You
would need to download it, and then could start it via
some exe file.  Nothing was actually installed in that
mode, e.g. no entry was made to the registry, and no
admin rights were needed.

kind regards
