    There are several gnuserve packages. Please use the latest from
    ( or Guy

    There is a name clash between the package server.el and gnuserv.el in
    the old packages.

I downloaded the whole package Emacs-22-CvsP060314-EmacsW32-1.00.exe from your link above. But the problem seems to be the same. The problem happens if I open a file with gnuclientw, then e.g. browse through directories for a while, then open another file with gnuclientw and
the old emacs windows pops up but does not load the second file.
The new thing with this version is that after closing the emacs window, I get the message: unable to read the reply from the server
It doesn't seem to be a firewall problem though since I also tried it with the firewall switched off.
Strange, I have never seen this. But did you remove everything about gnuserv from your startup files (.emacs etc)? If you use the EmacsW32 setup then this starts Emacs and gnuserv automatically for you when you click a file for example. If you have not removed everything about gnuserv, could you please try that?

(I guess you downloaded Emacs-22 CvsP060608-EmacsW32-1.03.exe?)
