Please take a look at

especially for the URLs and for how they are
used.  Once you have all packages in your DOWNLOAD_DIR, you should be
able to run without network access, at least I hope so.

Pre-compiled versions of emacs can be found
at (if you want to use miktex as
well, take a look at )

Additionally, you will want to use gdb as debugger, see .  I have
updated that page a little bit, but it probably needs more input from
those actively developing with Windows :-)
