   thanks McKay.  Right after I wrote my email, I checked if not having HOMEÂ
   set as an environment variable equal to %UserProfile$%
   was  the  problem. and of course, that was it !!!!! I thought HOME was
   automatically detected as %UseProfile" but I was obviously mistaken. The
   commands in my current dotemacs file do the trick. Thanks a lot and I'm
   sorry for the false alarm.

     Try adding the following lines to your dotemacs file:

   (setq comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-input t)

       Hi  All:  Please  bear with me because I'm totally lisp illiterate
       generallyà  clueless aboutà  the internals of emacs-ess.
     Â  Let me give the background first:
       I have a windows xp desktop and I've been using emacs-essà  which I
     Â  a while back from vincent goulet's distribution ( thanks vincent ). I
     Â  remember how I got it to wok but it is part of Gnu Emacs 22.3 and I've
     Â  included the dotemacs file that I use in my home directory on my
     desktop. I
     Â  don't know which command in the dotemacs does it but one of them makes
     Â  such that when you run commands in R, the scroll bar in the other
     Â  moves down nicely so that you can see your output. It's all great. But,
     Â  course, there'a a but:
     Â  I recently got a laptop for my birthday and I'm taking it down to
     Â  for the Sweave tutorial. So today I downloaded vincent's
     Â  disribution which now is based off GNU Emacs 23.2. So, I copied my
     Â  file to the appropriate home directory on the laptop
     Â  ( there it's called \users\markleeds. on my desktop it's documents and
     Â  settings\mark leeds ). But when I test out the interaction
     Â  of emacs-ess by bringing up a test.R file and running some basic
     Â  the scroll bar behavior is that weird behavior where you can't see what
     Â  run. and have to bring the scroll bar down manually with your mouse.
     I'm not
     Â  sure what else is not workng but that's
     Â  definitely one thing. it essentially makes me not able to work in ess.
     Â  I've looked around to see if I did any other things to get emacs-ess on
     Â  desktop to work but it's been so long and I can't see anything.
       I vaguelyà  remember needing require or load somewhere but I don't see
     ( or
       don't  know  where  to find ) where I did something like that if I
     Â  something like that.
     Â  I think the problem might be either that A) on my laptop, my dotemacs
     Â  is either not getting read or possibly it is getting read but then the
     Â  commands are getting overrode by some command in another file ? or B)Ã
     Â I'm
       supposed to put require or load somewhereà  and I
     Â  haven't.
       So,  if  someone knows what might be causing this problem, it's
     Â  appreciated. I love emacs-ess but getting it work smoothly is
     Â  always something that I run into troubles with. But eventually,Ã Â when
     I do
     Â  get it to work, I'm a happy camper. ALso,Ã Â thank you to all the
     Â  people that created it and work on it.Ã Â Also, thanks a lot for any
     Â  and I'm sorry for being so lost. Also,Ã Â if you need
     Â  other information, just let me know.
