Hi Art,

The handling of HOME has changed on Windows in Emacs 22, see

   (info "(emacs) Windows HOME")

Best wishes,

instead of the one my instructions suggests, namely this one:

emacs-21.3-bin-i386.tar.gz 10-Mar-2004 18:40 13M
The rest of my instructions should be the same.

That is what I would say, but I would have to try it to know for sure.

Good luck,
                - Art

Hello, I am trying to upgrade my current version of emacs from 21.3 to
22.1.  I was able to obtain emacs 21.3. using the directions written by
Professor Arthur Lee. Here is the website:

Is there another website similar to the one written by professor Lee,
that would provide me with step by step directions for downloading and
installing emacs 22.1. Once again I was able to download and install
21.3 with ease. Professor Lee's instructions were excellent. But I would
love to get the chance to obtain the latest version of emacs. I simply
would like to be up to date on new stuff.
