thank you, but it still doesn't work. the debugger information is as
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "gnuserv")
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "~/.emacs" nil t)
  load-with-code-conversion("c:/.emacs" "~/.emacs" t t)

I can't understand what this means. Since it says that cannot open the file
gnuserv, I think maybe it is a problem of path. However, I have add the path
to the environment variable "PATH". Would you please tell me where did you
put your emacs and the gunserv file? thanks
