The LispWorks 7.0 installer contains each of the Editions. Additionally, there may be a patch installer which upgrades LispWorks to version 7.0.x. You need to complete the main installation before adding patches.
On systems where this is not present, installing LispWorks will automatically install a copy of the Microsoft.VC80.CRT component, which contains the Microsoft Visual Studio runtime DLLs needed by LispWorks.
See Uninstalling LispWorks for Windows for instructions.
To install LispWorks in a non-default location (for example, to ensure it is accessible only by the licensed user on a multi-user system such as a login server (remote desktop)), select Custom setup in the Setup Type screen. Then click Change... in the Custom Setup screen and choose the desired location in the Change Current Destination Folder dialog. Do not simply move the LispWorks folder later, as this will break the installation.
If you do not want to install the HTML Documentation, select Custom setup in the Setup Type screen and select This feature will not be available in the HTML Documentation feature in the Custom Setup screen.
You can add the HTML Documentation and the PDF Documentation later, by re-running the installer. The documentation is also available at
After completing the main installation of the Professional or Enterprise Edition, ensure you install the latest patches which are available for download at
When the installation is complete, you can start 32-bit LispWorks on Windows 7 by choosing Start > All Programs > LispWorks 7.0 (32-bit) > LispWorks 7.0 (32-bit) , or on Windows 8 by choosing LispWorks 7.0 (32-bit) on the Start screen.
Note: After installation you must not move or copy the LispWorks folder, since the system records the installation location. Moreover LispWorks needs to be able find its library at runtime and therefore the LispWorks installation should not be moved around piecemeal. If you simply want to run LispWorks from somewhere more convenient, then consider adding a shortcut.
