Adding c:/Emacs23/EmacsW32/lisp/ to load-path
This site has duplicate Lisp libraries with the same name.
If a locally-installed Lisp library overrides a library in the Emacs release,
that can cause trouble, and you should probably remove the locally-installed
version unless you know what you are doing.

c:/Emacs23/emacs/lisp/vc-dav hides c:/Emacs23/emacs/lisp/url/vc-dav

1 Emacs Lisp load-path shadowing was found

Thanks Rainer,

That is probably something left over from an older installation of Emacs. Could you perhaps try to delete or rename the c:/Emacs23/ directory and install Emacs again?

You should take care of this, but I don't think it's related to your
original problem.

It is a bit related to the installer for Emacs+EmacsW32 that I distribute. I have written it so that it does not delete the old Emacs tree, but I think that is a mistake.

I think I will let it delete the emacs directory before installation. It should be (rather) safe since a user should not put files there.

Any thoughts on this?
