[CM] help with windows xemacs cm nightmare

Thanks for taking the time to run through that for me... I'm pretty sure 
now that the xemacs stuff is set up OK (it fontifies and highlights cm 
files etc. etc.). Unfortunately, cm itself still doesn't appear to be 
working for me. If I start up the lisp listener window I get the 

*** - Win32 error 6 (ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE) : The handle is invalid.

If I run either:

c:/cm-2.3.4/bin/lisp.exe -M c:/cm-2.3.4/bin/cm.mem -i c:/cm-2.3.4/bin/cminit.lisp
from Bash or
c:\cm-2.3.4\bin\lisp.exe -M c:\cm-2.3.4\bin\cm.mem -i c:\cm-2.3.4\bin\cminit.lisp
from Windows command prompt, then everything starts up fine (although it 
is agony to use!).

I doubt if it'll help track down the problem, but I'll mention it just in
case... I noticed that if I loaded the "processes.cm" examples and tried
one of the ones with midi out, then everything worked OK as long as I
started cm from a command prompt in the c: drive. If I started cm from a
different drive, then when calling "(events (ex4) out)", for example, I
got the following error:

*** - Win32 error 3 (ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND): The system cannot find the 
path specified.

Big thanks (again),
