I figured it out. My environment variables still pointed to Version 20.4:

emacs_dir=C:\Program Files\emacs-20.4
EMACSDATA=C:\Program Files\emacs-20.4\etc
EMACSDOC=C:\Program Files\emacs-20.4\etc
EMACSLOADPATH=C:\Program Files\emacs-20.4\lisp
EMACSLOCKDIR=C:\Program Files\emacs-20.4\lock
EMACSPATH=C:\Program Files\emacs-20.4\bin

Thanks for your help!

I just downloaded the latest version of Emacs. I'm running Windows XP for my OS on a Pentium 4 w/ 512 megs of memory. I get the following error when the program runs:
(C:\Program Files\emacs-21.2\bin\emacs.exe) [2 times]
x-complement-fontset-spec: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

I have run emacs on XP (Home) with no dramas.

Try emacs -q

To run without loading the local .emacs / .emacs.el file.

If this works the problem is in your .emacs / .emacs.el file.

If this does not work then, I suspect that it does not like a font string in your registry.

(From the FAQ)
To change the default font of Emacs frames using registry entries, create a value in the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GNU\Emacs:

        Value Name: Emacs.Font
        Value Type: REG_SZ
        String: -*-Courier-normal-r-*-*-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1

I have had a problem when I copied a font string that worked to a
system with a different DPI value.

Find and remove the offending registry entry.

Any suggestions...

Just those two
