You mentioned having installed from a *.zip file.  Where did it get
installed?

There should be an emacs or emacs-VERSION directory where the base
install was done.  So inside the emacs* directory you will find a
`bin' directory inside that is both an emacs.exe and runemacs.exe

On windows I think you need to execute runemacs.exe

installed in place of MYBASE_INSTALL

 MYBASE_INSTALL/emacs/bin/runemacs.exe -Q

Should start your emacs with out loading any of your init files.

This won't find your missing file but at least you can use emacs.

To find the missing file ... from windows explorer right click your
C:\ drive and select `search' from the menu.

Insert the name of the init file.. it may take a while but will
probably find it unless you've installed on a different disk or
somehow moved the init to a different disk.
