no, it doesn't. it says in the bottom that Spacemacs is ready. I tried again. This time, I didn't clone the .spacemacs.d/. it created a .spacemacs file and .spacemacs.env file. I am still exploring how to use this editor. Do you know of any issues in Emacs on Windows 7 that I could encounter? I'll message again if i found one. Thank you so much.
I use Spacemacs on Windows for work back on 2018 (it was a bank, I had no choice). The challenge I had was find the external binaries for Windows https://practicalli.github.io/spacemacs/before-you-start/recommended-command-line-tools.html If you are behind a corporate Windows firewall, then Emacs might not be able to download packages or otherwise connect to the internet. Other than that, I don't recall any issues. I did get an upgrade to Windows 10, so used the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). That makes it easier to use Clojure CLI tools and Emacs, as you can install a Linux image. I use Lenovo Laptops and if they come with windows I just delete that and install Ubuntu Linux instead.
