I don't understand why you load eli here, I think this Franz much older 
alternative to Slime.

Take a look at:

On Mac OSX, I just have 
(setq inferior-lisp-program "/Applications/AllegroCL/alisp")
in an emacs file and acl 8.2 start happily

The above mentionned page gives specific instructions on how to proceed 
on windows.
