Personally I use EmacsW32 (http://www.ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html) which comes with emacsclient. It also comes with a nice installer.

I personally have downloaded gnuserv.zip some long time ago and unpacked everything into the bin folder of the emacs installation. Consequently, the executables in that folder are:
(+ some others that do other things, e.g. ctags.exe etc)
I associate everything with gnuclientw.exe - this will start emacs if not running yet, and use an existing instance if it is - I have the following in my _emacs file.
;;; Start Gnuserv
(require 'gnuserv)
(setq gnuserv-frame (selected-frame))
Just saw on Emacs Wiki
(http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/emacs-en/EmacsClient) that the latest version of emacsclient works on Windows and the command line should be
emacsclient -n
and server-start) instead of (gnuserv-start).
I don't have any experience with this at the moment, but very well might migrate soon as gnuserv is pretty old and I don't think it maintained (it just happens to work).
Hope this helps.

Thanks - this sounds like almost the solution to a problem I have:  
I use emacs, ESS, auctex, Sweave under Windows XP and get new instances
of emacs when I open any file with an emacs association.  But, should I
associate extensions with gnuclient or emacsclient?  And is the file I
want called emacs.exe or runemacs.exe or something else?  Or is it
enough if I have (server-start) in my .emacs (which I do)?
Thanks - apologies if this is really the wrong list but this is the list
it came from... :)

In gnuemacs, you need to associate file extensions with gnuclient or
to get the file to open in an existing instance of emacs.  On windows,
at least,
associating a file extension with emacs itself opens a new copy of
emacs, instead
of a new buffer in the already open emacs.  The *client programs do the
thing to make the file open in a new buffer in the existing instance of
emacs.  These programs will work with xemacs.
