Ok, I was confused about this part, but I had already
installed TexMacs according to that page.


This page seemed to indicate this...

...but on re-reading it, now it seems to say that
tm_axiom is:

"A new version of the Axiom interface program 
tm_axiom that was written especially for Windows 
is included in the latest Axiom for Windows 
installation program. This will be used 
automatically by the native windows version of 

I took "interface program" to mean that which
will display the output (i.e., what TexMacs
presumably does) and apparently (now) it really
means "the program that TexMacs talks to..."

Or else there is NO connection between TexMacs
and Axiom (except through manual transfer)?????

On an old message there was a statement that said
that the drawing did NOT work on Windows -- is this
still true?  NO drawing?

This page indicates that TexMacs can use Axiom and
a variety of other programs as "plug-ins":

Likely I haven't done whatever is necessary to hook up
TexMacs to Axiom -- or else I misunstand what they
do together.

In general, I was expecting something like the Windows
version of Maxima-TeXmacs.  It this completely wrong?

I think it is (only) the TexMacs stand-alone
load that is incompatible with the Maxima built-in
TexMacs (likely one of the required DLLs is using
the same name but a different version.)
