Hi, this is a FAQ. The question "Where do I put my .emacs, (or _emacs), file?"
and many more Windoze related questions are answered in the GNU Emacs for
Windoze FAQ at "";.

There you can read that e.g. setting the HOME Environment to the directory where
you want to store your init file is one solution.

Hope this helps...
