first, why not just download a clisp win32 binary? you can use it
with XEmacs. i think this is one:

figure out what the pathname is to the windows "media player" exe is
and set cm's *midi-player* variable to that. i think you can use
unix / for the directory character in clisp.
(defparameter *midi-player* "c:/program files/whatever.exe")
this used to work without problem (i dont have a windows machine to
test for you, sorry)
you can put this *midi-player* definition in a ".cminit.lisp" file in
your home directory (whatever windows thinks that is!) or change it
in the system source file cm/src/midi2.scm. the next time you start
cm it will regenerate the .lisp source from .scm, compile and load
the file and your changes will be there.
