I just tried in a Windows 7 Virtual Machine.  I have Emacs 23.2 installed.

I do C-<spc>, and it works.

I do C-<shift>-2 (aka C-@), and it works as well. (On your keyboard, @ might be somewhere other than <shift>-2)

Is your keyboard the same as what Windows think is your keyboard.  I don't think I've ever seen C-@ not working while using emacs.

As a last resort you could:

(global-set-key "C-cm" 'set-mark)

Thank you all for your response. To answer your questions:

1. When typing C-SPC and then C-h l Emacs doesn`t show the C-SPC keypress in the buffer, but "C-h l"
2. Also C-@ does not work to mark text
3. I also downloaded the newest official windows release from But also in this distribution the problem is still the same.

Any further comments?

I don't know who Vincent Goulet is, is this version the same as the
official pre-compiled GNU Emacs for Windows that can be found at:
