9.4.2 Create and use a save-image script

  1. Create a configuration and saving script C:\temp\save-config.lisp , containing:
  2. (load-all-patches)
    (load "C:/temp/my-configuration.lisp")
    (save-image "my-lispworks")
  3. Change directory to the LispWorks installation directory, for example:
  4. C: cd C:\Program Files\LispWorks
  5. Start the supplied image using the configuration script as the build file. For example:
C:\Program Files\LispWorks>lispworks-6-1-0-x86-win32.exe -build C:\temp\save-config.lisp

If the image will not run at this stage, it is probably not finding a valid key.

Saving the image takes some time.

You can now use the new my-lispworks.exe image from the Windows Explorer, or you may choose to add a shortcut. The supplied image is not required after the configuration process has been successfully completed.

Do not try to save a new image over an image that is currently running. Instead, save an image under a unique name, and then, if necessary, replace the new image with the old one after the call to save-image has returned.
