Hi Carsten,

If you store file names relative to your home directory, then org-mode should be able to use ~/.... filenames which would be general. Is F: your home directory?

I do not have my org-files in my home directory (neither on GNU/Linux nor on Windows). That is why the expansion of "~" does not seem to help here.

Just to clear things up a bit: "F:\" is not my home directory. My home directory under Cygwin is "C:\cygwin\home\home\pduser". "F:\" is a fat32 partition I use to share my data between Windows and GNU/Linux. From GNU/Linux this partition is called "~/data/".

Tim O Callaghan was so kind to give me a tip off-list using the setenv variable. Since the paths I'm using are not the same in relation to my different home directories this might be a feasible solution.

My approach so far doesn't work (probably just my bad lisp):

  ((file-directory-p "C:/Programme")
   ; do Windows stuff:
   (setenv "DATA_HOME" (expand-file-name "F:/"))
  ((file-directory-p "/home/patrick/")
   ; do GNU/Linux stuff
   (setenv "DATA_HOME" (expand-file-name "~/data"))
(setq org-directory (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME") "/org-stuff"))
(setq org-remember-templates
       '((?t "* TODO %?\n  %i\n  %a" (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME")
        (?j "* %U %?\n\n  %i\n  %a" (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME")
(setq org-agenda-files (quote ((concat (getenv "DATA_HOME")
                               (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME") 
"/org-stuff/heinzerling.org" )
                               (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME") 
"/org-stuff/THESIS.org" )
                               (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME") 
"/org-stuff/privat.org" )
                               (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME") 
"/org-stuff/TODO.org" )
                               (concat (getenv "DATA_HOME") 

I receive following error message when trying to invoke the agenda from
an org file:
org-check-agenda-file: Wrong type argument: stringp, (concat (getenv
"DATA_HOME") "/org-stuff/computerstuff.org")
