Unfortunately graphics is not yet available on the Windows
version of Axiom. Both graphics and hyperdoc depend on some
graphical libraries (X-windows based) that are not available
under windows. Programs like viewport manager will have to
be re-written to interface with a Windows compatible graphics
library. This is a complex job that is going to take some
time.

Bug in Axiom windows version in Texmac mode --unknown, Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:34:01 -0500

I tried to find (a+b)^7 by various ways including (a+b)^6*(a+b) etc, all the time I get only oe result in TEXMAC, a^7. 
In the Axiomsys program , the answer is correct.

Axiom doesn't run on Windows --daly, Thu, 20 Dec 2007 06:05:08 -0800

Status: fix proposed => closed 

Strictly speaking, Axiom does not run on Windows
so this isn't a bug but a feature request.

The graphics code will run standalone. 
An effort could be made to port the viewalone
program to use XMing on Windows.

Future plans are to have the graphics run
embedded in Firefox.
