Having been recently moved to Windows-7 and wanting things to work
better for me, I learned some cool thinks like the command mklink to
make a link. Since I decided also to try the leading edge of the wave of
Emacs candidate releases, I made use of mklink to allow easy changes in
my emacs installation. Each install goes into a separate directory, but
I created a link "C:\Program Files\Emacs that points to the directory I
wish to use for my current installation. You need the /d option to
create a link to point to a directory. Then all file associations,
scripts, etc. no longer need to change. They all reference through the

Note that if you like to associate file types with emacs, like .txt and
so on, each of those is a separate registry command, so if you move your
emacs, you have to adjust all of them.  Or write a bat script and use
that.  At least I think this is true.  I always keep my emacs in the
same place: c:\Program Files (x86)\Emacs\Emacs.  Old versions go in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Emacs\Emacs-24.0.91 and so on.  That way they all
automatically read my site-lisp which I keep in c:\Program Files
