I'm not sure why you are gett= ing the=20 error "Wrong type argument:  processp, nil". A few=20 suggestions:
 
1. You did download the versi= on of=20 ilisp from cvs, correct? If not, follow the instructions to downloa= d the=20 cvs version of ilisp.
2. In emacs, before you press= F5, go=20 to the Options menu & make certain that the "Enter Debugger on = Error"=20 item is checked. Send me any detailed error messages.
3. When you are typing the "M= -x=20 ilisp-compile-inits" command, presumably you are doing the=20 following:
    Hold down = the Alt=20 key and press the x key
    In the min= ibuffer=20 window at the bottom, type in the command "ilisp-compile-inits" (wi= thout=20 the quotes) and press Enter
 
For activating Allegro (and o= ther lisp=20 implementations), the M-C-F5 key sequence means hold down the alt k= ey and=20 the ctrl key and press the F5 key.
 
Hope that helps.

I can't remember if I downloa= ded ilisp=20 from CVS or just downloaded the latest .tar.gz file from=20 sourceforge.net.  I do know that the instructions for download= ing=20 from cvs did not work for me on Win98.  After typing the first= line,=20 i.e.,
 
E:\ cvs=20 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.ilisp.sourceforge/net:/cvsroot/ilisp=20 login
 
and being asked for a passwor= d, I type=20 <CR> and get the following error:
 
CVS.EXE login: failed to open= =20 C:/HOME/.cvspass for reading: No such file or directory
CVS.EXE [login aborted]: fata= l error:=20 exiting
 
But, I run both Linux and Win= 98 and=20 these instructions work fine under Linux, so I may have
downloaded using CVS under Li= nux and=20 then copied the ILISP directory over to Windows.
 
I just tried your instruction= s=20 regarding activating the debugger upon error before hitting F5=20 and
here is what the debugger pro= duces=20 when I type "M-x ilisp-compile-inits" following pressing F5<= /DIV>
 
Debugger entered--Lisp error:= =20 (wrong-type-argument processp nil)
  process-buffer(nil) =20 comint-send(nil "(pathname-type (compile-file-pathname=20 \"ILISP-DUMMY-STRING\"))" t nil binary nil (lambda (error wait mess= age=20 output last) (if (or error ...) (progn ... ...) (setq=20 ilisp-binary-extension ...))))
  ilisp-binary(ilisp-binary-= command=20 ilisp-binary-extension)
  ilisp-init-internal(nil)
 = ;=20 ilisp-init(t)
  ilisp-compile-inits()
 =20 call-interactively(ilisp-compile-inits)
 =20 execute-extended-command(nil)
*=20 call-interactively(execute-extended-command)
Are there important differenc= es=20 between the CVS version of ilisp and version 5.11?
