In Windows Explorer, it's refused to create dot files for a long time - stupid restriction but it's in Explorer only, as far as I know.   The file system will let you create dot files just fine.  You can create the files in Emacs itself, or Notepad, or on the command-line (using 'copy con' redirected to the dot file you want).

I'm a brand-new Win 7 user. Previously have used Emacs on Win XP with no problems. In Win 7, I seem unable to create a file in c:\ named ".emacs". The OS refuses to recognize this as a valid filename. What should I do?
