I'm the only user on my Windows box, but rather than setting a %VIM%
variable, I use the default (Which was the install directory on mine)
directory and under there I created an _vimrc.
So, in short with an install directory of C:\Vim, I have my file at
C:\Vim\_vimrc. Note that that is *not* the location of the executable
So, if you set a %VIM% variable (I'm using the windows syntax on
purpose, because $VIM ain't gonna work on 'doze) for your user of
something like (assuming windows 2k or better)
"c:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application Data\Vim" and
created a _vimrc file in there, you shouldn't be too far of it working :).
