I run Windows XP and I recently upgraded from Mathematica 5.0 to 5.2
(student version).
It seems to me that the file HOME\Application
Data\Mathematica\Autoload\init.m is not read anymore by the kernel, which
was the case before the update. 

The autoload path is
{FrontEnd`FileName[{$UserBaseDirectory, "Autoload"}, CharacterEncoding ->
"WindowsANSI"], FrontEnd`FileName[{$BaseDirectory, "Autoload"},
CharacterEncoding -> "WindowsANSI"],
FrontEnd`FileName[{$InstallationDirectory, "AddOns", "Autoload"},
CharacterEncoding -> "WindowsANSI"]} 

Maybe not important, but the file init.m contains:
AppendTo[$Path, "C: ... \\My Documents\\Mathematica files"];

but the $Path symbol does not contain this directory

Any comments or help is welcome,
Bart De Vylder
