Download and extract CoCoA exactly in
The directory C:\cocoa-5.2
should contain the directory emacs and other things.
In other words, if C:\cocoa-5.2 contains another directory
called cocoa-5.2 it's NOT good.
Download and extract Emacs
where you want (but preferably somewhere on disk C:)
Now follow these steps for linking Emacs to CoCoA:
ALL DONE!! info & screenshots
- close Emacs, if open
- click on Control Panel
- click on System and security (for some MSWindows versions)
- click on System and then on the tab Advanced
- click on Environment variables (it is the button at the
bottom of the window)
- click on new for System variable,
or just edit the variable HOME if
you had already defined it for a previous version
of cocoa-5.x) and then set exactly:
| variable || HOME|
| value || C:\cocoa-5.2\emacs|
- click on a few OK to close all the windows
In some versions of windows there is an error if you
start CoCoA from a file "myfile
.cocoa5" which is not on disk "C:"

If you have already defined your own favourite Emacs options/colours/..
you might prefer to pick and copy from cocoa-5.2/emacs/cocoa.emacs
into your .emacs
only the settings you desire.
