I have a Windows Vista SP1, and when using emacsclient or emacsclientw, they always return immediately with return value 1, and do not wait making it useless as EDITOR for command line utilities which should wait.

I use the emacsclient from cmd.exe and not from cygwin. I also started emacs with –q, and started server manually after that, so no startup file should be causing this.

Is this a known issue?

Otherwise I love emacs :)


In GNU Emacs 22.2.1 (i386-mingw-nt6.0.6001)

 of 2008-03-26 on RELEASE

Windowing system distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version 6.0.6001

I do not have Emacs 22 here. However I just tested with CVS Emacs 23, both unpatched and the patched version that comes with Emacs+EmacsW32. I saw no problem, both emacsclient and emacsclientw waited as expected.

Some notes:

- Please use -Q (uppercase), not -q (lowercase). -q will still run site-start.el

- If you test from a console window (running cmd.exe) then please note that emacsclientw can not make cmd.exe wait for it. I can't remember the technical terms for it but w here stands for "window, GUI". Program linked as GUI applications do not use a console window (by default). They can not write to a console and if started from a console the console will not wait for them.
