Hi Mike,
  Thanks for your comments.  Combining what you wrote with what Achim wrote I 
was able to get my upgraded installation (org-7.8.90) to work as it once did in 
org-6.36 (at least so far).  

  I am unable to generate something similar to what you wrote that appears after 
the <at> sign - (you got something that included a path (~/.emacs.d/org-
7.8.09/lisp directory location)), all I get is the string org-7.8.09.  Is the 
path stashed away in some customization variable that I can examine?

  If I don't have access to Make and I hand compiled the code, should I continue 
to expect to encounter other types of problems?

  At the risk of being redundant (as I separately replied to Achim) - Regarding 
the installation instructions: At first I started here 
(http://orgmode.org/manual/Installation.html#Installation) but since I am 
running on windows 7, I have no access to "Make".  I want to avoid installing 
cywin as it typically fails to track windows 7 x64.  As far as I can tell, make 
is unnecessary as well since you can hand compile all the files (as I described 
in my bug report). It's my mistake that I failed to notice the requirement to 
add (require 'org-install).

  Here's a suggestion that might help others who encounter similar problems:  
Augment the installation description 
(http://orgmode.org/manual/Installation.html#Installation) with a short 
description for windows users (that avoids the use of make).
