I Have found Lisp Cabinet to be a nice all-in-one Windows install of a
Lisp environment, it gives you access to several Lisps including SBCL. I
liked it better than Lispbox.
But, having been through the pain you are experiencing now, I have to
say, doing it the hard way with seperate installs of emacs/sbcl/slime is
worth it. You are forced to find out about the necessary plumbing that
stitches it all together, once you have that grounding then I recommend
Lispbox or Lisp Cabinet for Windows, or even better install a Linux
distro in a VM or seperate partition and just apt-get all the tools. I
found Ubuntu the easiest to do this with.
