today I know whizzyTeX can be use with Emacs on Windows. But I don't know how to install it. Can anyone help me install whizzyTeX on Windows?. I had installed 24.2.

Sorry, I deleted my comment. The instructions I had were for the Mac... – Vivi Jan 20 '13 at 23:30

Apparently WhizzyTeX runs under Cygwin (1.5.5-1) using Cygwin/Xfree 4.3 and xdvi from teTeX 2.0.2-13. This requires several modifications according to the WhizzyTeX FAQ. instead of repeating the installation steps here, please refer to the WhizzyTeX FAQ.

There was a SourceForge project to port WhizzyTeX to Windows but that seems to have stagnated.

but I don't understand. Can you help me install step by step. I'm very very thank you so much! – Muniain Jan 19 '13 at 16:47
Maybe you could expand your question with the different steps of the installation and point out which steps you have problems with? – Peter Jansson Jan 19 '13 at 17:01
