when using emacs on Windows, when in dired, when i press Z on a file
that's gzip compressed, emacs tells me:
'gunzip' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

the problem is apparently that emacs won't recognize the gunzip shell
script without the exe suffix. (the gunzip is in the same dir as
gzip.exe) But if i rename gunzip to gunzip.exe, but Windows complain
that the file is not a exe format.

How to solve this problem?

It might work to copy gzip.exe into gunzip.exe.

Failing that, create a batch file gunzip.bat that does the same as the
shell script gunzip, and put it somewhere on your Path.

Why not just rename the existing gunzip script to gunzip.bat?
