Sorry, this was a typo.
Of course emacs and its site-start directory are in q:\tools
\emacs-22.1.

currently I use a .emacs that contains
(load-library "q:/tools/emacs-22.1/site-lisp/site-start.el")
which works.

Starting a command prompt (M-! start cmd) and entering SET
EMACSLOADPATH gives:
EMACSLOADPATH=Q:/TOOLS/emacs-22.1/site-lisp;Q:/TOOLS/emacs-22.1/../
site-lisp;Q:/TOOLS/emacs-22.1/lisp;Q:/TOOLS/emacs-22.1/leim

Copying and pasting Q:/TOOLS/emacs-22.1/site-lisp behind a C-x C-f
command goes to the correct location and I can choose site-lisp.el.

same with a locally installed emacs: M-! start CMD SET EMACSLOADPATH
gives
c:\emacs-22.1>set EMACSLOADPATH
EMACSLOADPATH=C:/emacs-22.1/site-lisp;C:/emacs-22.1/../site-lisp;C:/
emacs-22.1/l
isp;C:/emacs-22.1/leim

c:\emacs-22.1>dir C:\emacs-22.1\site-lisp
 Volume in Laufwerk C: hat keine Bezeichnung.
 Volumeseriennummer: D49D-5134

 Verzeichnis von C:\emacs-22.1\site-lisp

10.12.2007  08:29    <DIR>          .
10.12.2007  08:29    <DIR>          ..
10.12.2007  08:29               531 site_start.el

To be sure I also renamed site_start.el to site-start.el, but no
success.

So it is still unclear why it doesn't work.
Is there a problem with '/' vs. '\' ??
Must emacs be installed (by addpm.exe) with administrator privileges?
