When I run the user-init-file is not set. It is nil. Why is this?
If you haven't created an init file yet, then nil is the expected value.
Is upstart options, a leftover from a previous install (I think
everything was deleted from the registry), or a bug?
What is "upstart options"?
If I add:
; Brian's suggestions
(setenv "HOME" (getenv "USERPROFILE"))
(cd (getenv "USERPROFILE"))
(setq user-init-file (concat (getenv "HOME") "\\_emacs"))
I get a user-init-file where expected, but it has to be read manually
by load-file. why?
Because you are already past the point where the init-file is loaded.
The directory structure confuses me.
Under the emacs directory I have three dirs:
Both are in the lisp search path (at least with the default lisp search
path). One is for version specific site-lisp files, the other for
version independant site-lisp files.
emacs-21.3, setup and site-lisp.
Under emacs-21.3 there is another site-lisp, which seems to be the one
that is actually used. What is the separate one doing?
