Thanks Ralf, it works now! It does open acrobat, but one problem remains:
indeed, I am used to compiling, then looking at something in acrobat, leaving it
open and edit stuff in the .tex file then compile again and look at the changes
in the pdf; here, if I leave acrobat open, and I change something, it tells me
it can't write  on the file (I guess because it is already in use) so that if I
C-c C-v, the pdf is not updtated.

Is there a workaround? I did check in the manual (which I have downloaded in
pdf) but, I haven't found anything about that yet.
Installing emacs on windows is not an easy thing. I guess I will have to dual
boot vista and ubuntu sooner than I expected 'cos I think the installation under
linux is more streamlined.
