I was able to use Emacs normally on Windows until the latest update to
Build 17711.rs_prerelease.180703-1539. Now, whenever I start Emacs, it just shows the default welcome page, even though
.emacs.d is still present in my home folder with all the
spacemacs configurations in it. It seems that it's just ignoring
.emacs.d altogether. I wonder if this has something to do with some changes introduced in this update.
If I change
.emacs, Emacs does seem to pick it up and apply some settings (e.g. the
variable-pitch font specification). However, it apparently still can't use
.emacs.d properly and still shows the default welcome page.
Maybe it has something to do with the folder name which contains two dots. Is there a way to configure Emacs to look for a folder with a different name to
