With -q and -Q and the following:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist
'("\\.\\(arc\\|zip\\|tar\\|gz\\|lzh\\|zoo\\)\\'" . archive-mode))

Then loading a *.tar or *.gz file generates the following error messages:

File mode specification error: (error "Buffer format not recognized") [3 times]

Don't worry abou this as I have managed to get cygstart online
whenever you load a file in dired, so that a Winzip window pops up
whenever you load an archive file.

Sincerely and kindest regards, Davin.
