[org-mode] org-protocol commands are treated as filenames

Hi folks,

(I hope that this is the right place to ask this question; if not then if you 
could point me in the right direction of where to ask it then I'd appreciate 

I'm trying to get org-protocol working, and I've hit a snag that I'm hoping is 
something basic that I'm missing because I'm new to Emacs. 

I've followed the instructions on the web 
( However, when I launch 
Emacs with a command-line argument consisting of an org-protocol command then 
Emacs treats it as a filename rather than a command. 

For example, if I run:

\emacs-24.2\bin\emacsclientw.exe org-protocol:/store-link:/

Then I see in my buffer list that I'm editing a file called 
"C:\trash\org-protocol:/store-link:/" (or whatever). 

I'm using Emacs 24.2, and all I've got in my init.el is: 

(require 'org-protocol)

I believe that's all I need as org-protocol is included in 24.2 by default.

Is there some special command that I'm missing that instructs Emacs that an 
argument should not be treated as a filename? Or is my problem more complex 
than that?

Many thanks for any guidance you can give -- I'm a little new to all this, and 
the learning curve is quite steep.
