By far the easiest, and oft overlooked, method to start the server is to
use the alternative-editor parameter. My EDITOR env is ~/bin/edit where
"edit" is the following simply bash script:

,----
| #!/bin/bash
| # edit
| export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
| exec emacsclient --alternate-editor="" -c "$@"
`----

emacsclient will start the daemon if it's not already started.
