runemacs.exe passes its command-line to emacs.exe, so command line switches 
should work.

Don't set EMACS_SERVER_FILE at all unless you customized server-name in Emacs.  
The error message does not explicitly state it, but you only need to do one of 
the things it is suggesting to resolve the problem of emacsclient not 
communicating with emacs. ALTERNATE_EDITOR will always work, EMACS_SERVER_FILE 
will work if a different server-name is the cause of the problem.
