I can get emacsclient/emacsserver to work for "Edit with Emacs" once Emacs is running, but can't get it to start the first time. How do I do this? Can EmacsW32 be configured to leave the keyboard alone? I know it's confusing -- and even occasionally find myself scrolling forward when I want to paste -- but I use Emacs on UNIX for work, too, so my fingers mostly know the original key bindings.

(The solution to starting Emacs the first time using emacsclient/emacsserver on UNIX leverages the ALTERNATE_EDITOR environmental variable, a concept that does not exist on Windows, as far as I know.)

ALTERNATE_EDITOR works on Windows. Set it to runemacs.exe to avoid the console window popping up when emacs is started.
