Thanks, Eli but I think that there might be more to it than that at
least on my system. After doing that I see:

No socket or alternate editor. Please use:

(either user or system environment variables)

I think I want ALTERNATE_EDITOR=c:\emacs\bin\runemacs --debug-init
but I'm not sure. Can runemacs.exe take switches like emacs.exe?  What
EMACS_SERVER_FILE should be set to I don't know.

Is my problem that I didn't install Emacs (still on ver. 23.3) in
Windows Programs? Could there be PATH problems related to that? I do
have (server-start) at the end of my .emacs
