Then this is not the case which the patch was supposed to solve.

What you need to do is this:

 . exit Emacs

 . rename the c:\emacs\.emacs.d directory

 . start Emacs with "emacs -Q"

 . exit Emacs

This should create c:\emacs\.emacs.d with the right credentials.  You
should be able to see that with the same command as before:

 M-: (file-attributes "c:/emacs/.emacs.d" 'integer) RET

It should now show 1000, which is your Windows user ID, instead of
544, as the 3rd member of the list it displays.  If this succeeds, you
can invoke Emacs as usual, and the server should start without the
warning.  If you have something important in the old .emacs.d, you can
now copy it to the new .emacs.d.
