Yes.  I am the XEmacs stable (21.4) build maintainer and make the
native Windows setup kits (both 21.4 and 21.5) for XEmacs, but I don't
use Windows very much these days.

Well, that's why I asked Volker what problems he had - it's easier to
solve problems when you have a description of them.

Here is the Installation file from my most recent cygwin build of XEmacs 21.5:
