Xemacs error

I am getting an Xemacs error when it starts up.  I placed Xemacs in a non-standard location, and setup some environment variables.  It seems to know where HOME is.  I have also unloaded the packages into a sub-directory where the EXE file resides.  I placed binaries in the directory – all are version 21.4.19.  I did not install using the Xemacs installation tool, because security measures at the bank (Bank of America) prevent such an installation.  I also tried to find information at regarding the correct directory structure and any Windows registry entries that I may need to set – to no avail.  My help desk said that I should email you.


I want to customize Xemacs further for the ess package, so I need to get this working to use it effectively.


Xemacs seems to work – I can edit files OK.  But the graphic menu at the top looks scrunched-up like this, which is another tell-tale error:




Here is the error, which appears in a DOS window:


WARNING:  Couldn't find an obvious default for the root of the XEmacs hierarchy.

WARNING:  Couldn't find obvious defaults for:






Perhaps some directories don't exist, or the XEmacs executable,

C:\Documents and Settings\NBKLUVA\My Documents\My Programs\xemacs-21.4.19\xemacs.exe

is in a strange place?



Can you please tell me how to fix this?
