Update on this. Very hot. Everything's latest (beta) version of 10 January...
2013 [1] does solve the problem I had: Everything is now working without
requiring to "run as an administrator". So does run Emacs now, while getting
back the functionality I was striving for.

Problem is solved. Case closed.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

[1] There have been a couple of changes since December 2012, after more than 2
years with no activity at all. I don't know which beta version does solve the
problem, but the very latest does.
