Jerome, 

I think Mark was speaking of setting up a file association, so, for
example, all files with .TXT extension will open emacsclient. That is
the part that is restricted in Win-7 or worse. Setting up a shortcut is
still easy to do, like you describe.

        I use emacsclient with the --alternate-editor=runemacs option in
Windows 7. Can't remember for sure how I set it up (I'm at home on Linux
right now), but I'm sure I did it from the GUI without any fancy
registry editing or stuff. IIRC you need to first create the shortcut
without specifying command line options, then go to the shortcut
properties (with A-RET or the context menu) where you should find a
field to add the options (can't remember whether there is a specific
field or whether you can add the options directly after the executable
name).
