When I installed emacs on windows I found, without my doing anything, it looked in the windows equivalent of ~, that is C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>
For example: C:\Documents and Settings\Mike
And as Richard suggested, setting an environment variable called HOME works great too.

Cannot put .emacs in C:\ (company policy).  I tried putting it into
C:\.emacs.d (which
emacs created during weak moment in the PC setup yesterday).  I tried in
"Documents and Settings\username".  Nothing has worked.  Help.

I am using emacs 21.3.1 for NT.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
