There is a great variety of environments to run GAP on NT;
you can use Cygwin, or not; you can use English keyboard
settings, or some other settings.

One can even run an X-server and run GAP in an xterm
(I guess even X-gap would work...)
Or run gap as a sub-process within NT-Emacs.

Moreover, your system can be an English-language system, or
it can use some other language as the "base" language.

The suggestion was to use the English keyboard settings.
One can install the corresponding NT support for this purpose.
My understanding was that then it runs OK, even on non-English
language installations.
Having English on, start the command prompt window; start
GAP within it.

The machine I have access to is an English-language system, so I cannot
be 100% sure about problems with non-English ones.
