PROBLEM/ABSTRACT:
Why doesn't the AccuRev GUI refresh and show my file status as (modified) when I exit Emacs?

SOLUTION:
AccuRev allows you to set the default editor launched by AccuRev by setting the AC_EDITOR_GUI variable. (See FAQ #66)

If you set AC_EDITOR_GUI=runemacs.exe you may find that when you save and exit the editor that the AccuRev GUI which is displaying the workspace does not refresh and show the file status as modified. As it turns out 'runemacs.exe' is returning *immediately* to AccuRev with a success error code, and AccuRev has no knowledge of when Emacs truly exits and therefore no refresh is performed.

Set AC_EDITOR_GUI=emacs.exe, the Emacs executable, which does *not* return immediately and then AccuRev will be aware of Emacs exiting and refresh the status on the edited files.
