[h-e-w] [windows Q] `emacs here' like windows power tool `cmdprompt here'I made the suggestion that setting up these context menu items should be supported by the Win32 installer. When I follow the link that Bryan provided, I find an answer (the fourth one) that implies that the installer already does this. However, I did not get it when installing under XP.

My version info:
GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2009-06-30 on LENNART-69DE564 (patched)

Is the poster at stackoverflow confused, or is this a newer feature that was not there when I installed?

StackOverflow has a "How to" page that may be helpful:

The site refers to "emacsclientw.exe", but "gnuclientw.exe" settings would be similar, for example:
; This puts "emacs" into the right-click menu in Windows Explorer.
@="C:\\emacs\\bin\\gnuclientw -q \"%L\""

My subject line is probably a miss-quote since I don't recall what the MS `power tool' was called that allowed user to open a dos command
window at whatever directory she was browsing using a right click

If anyone knows what I'm talking about, maybe you'll know if anyone has ever written something for emacs that would allow user to open an emacs terminal at whatever directory she is browsing.
