[h-e-w] EmacsW32 - EmacsClient ERROR

I’m using GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2006-12-05 on W2ONE (patched)


I’m new to EmacsW32 with prior limited knowledge of GNU Emacs 21.3.  I downloaded the latest patched EmacsW32 (5 Dec 06) and installed it.  I then tried to run the Emacs link that is created by the installer and I get the following error message:

“EmacsCleint ERROR: The requested Emacs remote server is not running”


I am not familiar with the Emacs Client / Server interface, but was also not asked to configure anything specific during the installation.  I have managed to get Emacs to work using the “addpm.exe” binary that is found in the Bin folder.  However, I would like to know how to get the Client/Server to work as I can see the benefit.  The EmacsW32 web page says:

Emacsclient is patched so that it can start Emacs and emacs server automatically when needed. (This behaviour was before offered by gnuclient. If you are using the unpatched version you can use version 1.08 of EmacW32 to get this functionality back.) (Added 2006-11-21)


…but it seems that with a standard installation the emacsclient does not manage to start the server.  Where can I find more information on what could be causing this problem on my machine?  None of the get started pages address this issue.
