I am having a problem getting asdf to work properly with the allegro express version on windows, if I push the directory containing my asd file onto to the *central-repository* list and then try to load the system it gives an error stating that the component is not found, is there something I'm not aware of with either allegro or asdf on windows, this works fine on SBCL/linux.

Check that your directory is properly specified with something like (merge-pathnames "test.asd" #P"C:\\my\\directory\\"). ASDF won't work until this returns the full path to the system.asd file.

Also, some systems don't handle windows shortcuts properly; but it doesn't sound like that was your problem.
