Thanks for the response. Same result with 'emacs -Q' as well, i'm afraid.
Then maybe an strace will help. Please give the following command:
strace -o strace.out /usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe -Q
This is interseting.
$ strace -o strace.out /usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe -Q
Then look at the output file strace.out to see if it provides a clue as to
what's going wrong. If you don't see anything, compress the file and send
it to me as an attachment off list.
I could send that, but it would just be a zero-byte file. :-)
$ ls -l | grep strace.out

I saw before this. It is an antivirus.
The seg fault is coming from strace as the AV is blocking the
loading of dll's of emacs.
Try disabling it.
