The situation where I thought the current behaviour was a problem was when specifying --alternate-editor to emacsclient. If the user for some reason (which I might not understand ;-) wants to run emacs in a console, and this should be started through the use of --alternate-editor then the simplest way (from a user perspective) to get this working might be to do something like

   set alternate_editor=runemacs.exe -nw

The simplest way is emacs -nw. Why would they use runemacs? If they are used to running emacs -nw, then they would have learnt quickly that runemacs is not suitable.

I do not think "emacs -nw" will work in all situations. I believe there should be a GUI version of emacsclient.exe. Does "emacs -nw" work if you use the GUI version?

Note: I added a GUI version to gnuclient.exe which I called gnuclientw.exe. The purpose of this was to avoid unnecessary console windows.
