1. Yesterday (2013-07-31), with emacs 23.2 installed on my Windows7 (64bit)
   desktop, I unzipped emacs-24.3-bin-i386.zip using <right mouse>7-Zip "Un=
zip here".

2. I copied the unzipped folder to "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3".

3. I clicked "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3\bin\addpm.exe" to updat=
e the
   new program menu group.

4. Windows - All Programs - Gnu Emacs - Emacs; M-x version --> "GNU Emacs 2=
4.3.1
   (i386-mingw-nt6.1.7601) of 2013-03-17 on MARVIN"

5. Right click "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3\bin\runemacs.exe"
   "Pin to Taskbar"  It does and it loads from there.

5.5. I deleted "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-23.2".

6. <=3D=3D=3D The Problem =3D=3D=3D>
   Right click "foo.bib", "bar.tex", or "foobar.txt", "Open with ..." does =
not
   allow me to select "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3\bin\runemacs.e=
xe".
   "Open with" presents me with a dialog box. I choose the "Browse..." butt=
on,
   navigate to "runemacs.exe", double-click the file, which populates the t=
ext
   box, but when I press "Open", "runemacs.exe" does not appear in the "Ope=
n
   with" dialog box as a program that I can choose.

7. I can choose "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3\bin\emacs.exe" ("GNU
   Emacs: The extensible self-documenting text editor"), which opens the
   annoying command window in the background.

8. I can also choose "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3\bin\emacsclient=
w.exe"
   ("GNU EmacsClient: Client for the extensible self-documenting text edito=
r"),
   but that produces the following error message:
   Emacsclient ERROR
   C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\emacs-24.3\bin\emacsclientw.exe: No socket or
   alternate editor. Please use:
   --server-file (or environment variable EMACS_SERVER_FILE)
   --alternate-editor (or environment variable ALTERNATE_EDITOR)
   [OK]
   How can I remove this "emacsclientw.exe" from the "Open with" associatio=
n?

9. I had this problem years ago when I worked in another department
   (unrestricted SW use) with an earlier version of emacs for
   Windows 2k. The problem disappeared with a new OS install and a new vers=
ion of emacs.

   I presently work in an environment where I can only run "approved
   software". Everything else is forbidden by policy. Emacs is allowed.
   I cannot edit my registry, but I can ask my IT department to edit it for
   me. Is this a registry problem? If so, can I ask my IT department to cor=
rect
   this problem by making certain edits? If so, which ones?

Thank you,
Joseph
