That seems why Amaya doesn't start by default, because the default 
Amaya profile directory:

%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\amaya

would expand to:

C:\Documents and Settings\jcsantos\amaya

where "C:\Documents and Settings\jcsantos" doesn't really exists, I 
guess.

I'm not clear how you set the AMAYA_USER_HOME and then try to start 
Amaya - do you open a Command Prompt to issue the above SET command 
and then start Amaya from the shortcut created by the installer? If 
it is like that, it won't start as the AMAYA_USER_HOME setting won't 
be in effect for the environment where Amaya is started from the 
shortcut.
