I think it´s not allowed to create filenames on MS-Systems beginning
with a dot, use _ instead, e.g. _emacs.  You can save files beginning
with a dot in Emacs, but your OS doesn´t support this and can´t find
these files.

You need to set a global HOME-variable for your _emacs file. My MS-time
is a long time ago, but I think you can do this in autoexec.bat with

set HOME=\path\to\your\_emacs\file

and restart your computer. Please take a look in the Emacs-docs, it
should be described anywhere.
