bug#27589: Wrong documentation for .emacs lookup on Windows

Oops, forgot to mention version 24.5.1. Also if I try to open the file "c:/Users/bjorn/AppData/Roaming/.emacs" something weird happens and Emacs redirects me to the file "c:/Users/bjorn/.emacs" instead.

Information in these pages is incorrect:


In my case .emacs is at "C:\Users\bjorn\AppData\Roaming\.emacs" Emacs does not set the value of the HOME variable to that location:

(getenv "HOME")

And "Within Emacs, <~> at the beginning of a file name is expanded to your HOME directory, so you can always find your .emacs file by typing the command C-x C-f ~/.emacs." is therefore not true:

(expand-file-name "~/.emacs")
