I use winXP Pro. Maybe that's because I put emacs in the 'Program Files' directory (with a space). For a while I had it on c:\., but I decided to give a try to Windows standards ...

I should also add that, despite this tiny problem, I am more than happy with your distribution of emacs+emacsW32. Keep up the good work!

St.

Thanks Stéphane, yes of course I will change that in the next release. I
thought I had put quotation marks there. I really wonder why it works
for me without those. What version of windows are you running?
