On one hand, it doesn't seem to be the documented behavior in the node
"Windows HOME" of the manual. It refers to the init file as `.emacs',
and says nothing about possible alternatives.

On the other hand, and according to the same info node, C:\ is checked
as one possible "home" directory. Thus, init files such as
"C:\.emacs.el" or "C:\.emacs.d\init.el" should be valid ones. But I've
just tested those two and Emacs don't find them.
