> Hello group,
> I am in the embarassing situation that I have installed slime succesfully on one XP laptop, but fail to do it on my XP workstation.  
> The main symptom on the failing machine is that after emacs opens up an inferior lisp process, it fails to load a lisp file with the following error message:
> LOAD: A file with name /c/lispbox-0.7/slime-20060110/swank-loader.lisp does not exist
> Here are some details of my setup:
> My procedure for installing slime was to try to copy the setup from lispbox-0.7.  This is the "complete clisp+emacs+slime" installation for windows.  I looked at lispbox.bat file, from which I gathered that in emacs I need to 
> 1: define the environment variable LISPBOX_HOME
> 2: load lisbox.el and 
> 3: execute slime.
> Well, I managed to do that on the laptop.  Initially I had problems because I had installed both lispbox-0.7 directory and the slime-2.0 directory in c:\Program Files (with the space).  These two directories are now residing directly under C:.  After further work, my .emacs file has the following slime-related code:
> (setq inferior-lisp-program (concat
> 				   (local-setting 'cygwin-root)
> 				   (local-setting 'cygwin-clisp)))
> (add-to-list 'load-path (local-setting 'slime))
> (load "lispbox"))
> Here the (local-setting ...) retrieves my cygwin root and my clisp directories, so that emacs can find clisp. I am attaching lispbox.el.  At the end of the file, it does some stuff to prep slime (slime-setup). <<lispbox.el>> 
> The inferior lisp buffer can interact with clisp (the one that came with cygwin).  
> Thank you very much for your help,
> Mirko
