Hi Manish,

Thank you for your reply.

I tried what you said:
(add-to-list 'load-path "C:/path/to/org-mode/lisp")
(require 'org-install)
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode))
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)

But I had to create a .emacs file (.emacs filename and no extension - 
not sure if this is right). I placed 2 copies - 1 where runemacs.exe is 
located (c:/emacs/bin) and another in c:/emacs - but it seems like 
there's no effect on the behaviour of org-mode... So I think there's a 
problem with reading the .emacs..

I have already set the path: C:\emacs\bin\ and Added environmental 
variables HOME = c:\emacs\

I have a feeling I'm doing something simple wrong...

Thanks,


Bailey
