Do you have Carbon Black Defense Antivirus running? I had to install emacs in a 
directory path with no upper case letters before Carbon Black would permit it 
to run. Cb logged a system event claiming emacs was inserting code in another 
process when it was in fact the same emacs process; Cb apparently lowercased 
only one of two dir\file strings before comparing them.
