Does anyone know if the new emacs supports daemon mode in windows?

In Windows I just put a  shortcut to runemacs.exe in my Startup folder and then add (server-start) in my .emacs.d somewhere.  This works for the Win32 version from FSF just fine.  No need to muck about in cygwin. If you want it hidden, set the Startup shortcut to run Minimized.

I understand there's a difference between this old way and using daemon mode with --daemon, but it's trivial: in Windows you can't start console clients on the graphical server (the "console" device in Windows is broken anyway), and you have to start emacs first (which you would do at every login anyway)...

Has anyone complied emacs with msvc on windows? If so is there a speed enhancement? I love emacs but it keeps on getting slower and slower on windows. I'm forced to use windows at work, so changing to mac or linux is not an option.

I have used Emacs on Windows for 18 years or so; plenty fast for my purposes when using compiled elisp for add-ons, and when using deferred load of elisp. Of course I only do startup once a month or so.
