comment Strange behaviour when compiling auctex from MELPA inside Cygwin's Emacs (w32 version)
Can you tell us how you've installed emacs and what configuration you're running? Does it work at all with emacs -q (following all the standard package initialization procedures manually)?

Without more information about your configuration, it will be impossible to help. If it's of any use to you, feel free to use my configuration.

I assume you tried restarting Emacs?

Try just LaTeX-mode… AUCTeX should have 'advised' it to run its functionality.

comment Does boldface sans-serif not work?
@SilvioLevy I'm not sure I follow. These macros aren't intended to display mathematics, they're intended to display text (which can be inserted into mathematics, but follows very different typographical rules). Using \text…{…} seems quite natural to me.

comment How do I launch MiKTeX
@Bernard et al., my mistake :) And my apologies Giacomo – I was too quick to speak. But I will say that I used MiKTeX for years without needing to install additional software and I do remember seeing postscript-related utilities cluttering my start menu (I never had need to use them). I wish I still had that old machine – perhaps I could provide more insight. In lieu of that, I suppose my apologies will just have to do :)

By the way, welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format.

comment How do I launch MiKTeX
In my couple years' experience, supervisors are often very behind-the-times with their TeX systems. While TeX documents from the 80s still work, TeX development has proceeded far past that era. Take their advice with a grain of salt – do some original research – don't spread misinformation :)

GSView and Ghostscript are included in MiKTeX – that's what makes it a TeX distribution. Batteries included and all that jazz.

@MyUserIsThis Wouldn't you just use the built-in View command?
