I used to have Emacs 25.xx on my windows pc and was very happy with the daemon/server mode of emacs. Emacs started via batch-script on startup and everything worked fine -- on every subsequent call Emacs just started instantly. Just as it should. :-)
However, due to scrolling problems in AucTeX I went back to 24.5.1. Now Emacs doesn't start in server mode.
I found http://wikemacs.org/wiki/Emacs_server and it says at the bottom that on Microsoft Windows you need to have at least Emacs version 25 to use the server mode.
Is this just outdated information? Is there really no way to run Emacs 24 in server mode on Windows? Has anyone of you experience with running Emacs in server mode on Windows?
If that's important: I use Windows 10. Thanks in advance for any input on that topic.
