The problem is when environment variable "EMACSPATH" is set to something
other than where the emacs.exe resides.
The variable "exec-directory" is set using "EMACSPATH" env variable and
not argv[0]. Hence, it is very easy to confuse by setting "EMACSPATH" to
a wrong location.
In my case:
Emacs is installed in "D:/GNU/emacs"
Hence, "exec-directory" was "D:/GNU/bin"
