This section describes some of the most common problems that can occur during installation or configuration of LispWorks for Windows.
If your LispWorks installation is in the
%ProgramFiles% folder and you edit
private-patches\load.lisp directly, then Windows starts to use a redirected private copy of
Help > Install Private Patches...
will not update this copy, and thus your new patches will not be loaded.
