comment Cannot use Alt code for Unicode character insertion any more
I suggest giving WinCompose a try since it lets you input the ellipsis with the simple and intuitive combination [Alt] [.] [.].

comment Compose key sequences result in the wrong character
Are you actually using the en_US.UTF-8 locale? Also, are you witnessing the same behaviour in GTK+ applications as in non-GTK+ applications (e.g. urxvt)?

@Khaur an option to do case-insensitive matching was added in WinCompose 0.6.4.

comment Is there a Windows keyboard shortcut to combine accent marks with other characters?
You can get a fully working compose key with WinCompose. (I don’t feel like posting this as an answer, because I’m the author, but honestly it’s pretty good)

comment AllChars compose key doesn't work in EmacsW32 and mintty
@ak2 by the way, since I had too many issues with AllChars I have written my own compose key software for Windows, and it is a lot more robust — if you want to have a look at it, it’s called WinCompose.

comment Compose key on Windows
I humbly suggest you do, yes. I wrote WinCompose because no other alternative in your list satisfied me. I kept it as simple as possible but am totally open to suggestions for improvements.

Hi. I think the problem with WinCompose was that it only shipped a 64-bit executable. This was since fixed in version 0.4.4.
