I'm running Windows 7 with gvim 7.4 installed in the default location. I have created a file
C:\Users\MyUserNameHere\_vimrc with just a few lines as simple as:
set nowrap set tabstop=2 set shiftwidth=2 set expandtab set foldmethod=indent
There seems to be nothing wrong with my _vimrc. However, when I open a PHP file, the syntax higlighting is gone after I create this file. Of course I could just add the line
to the _vimrc file in the directory corresponding to my username. But the fact that syntax highlighting is gone makes me think that some other useful default settings may be gone as well.
So, what I would like to know is, by creating
C:\Users\MyUserNameHere\_vimrc, have I overridden another
_vimrc file somewhere on the filesystem? I have tried searching from the windows search box next to the start button but found nothing.
