You were adding to the end of the load path, and emacs was using the
first copy it came to (the one included in emacs).

You could try something like this instead...


(setq load-path-orig load-path)
(setq load-path
      (append
       (list
        ("D:/Software/office/emacs/org-6.21b/org-6.21b/lisp"))
       load-path-orig))))

(comments and other suggestion welcome!)
