getting CCL, Emacs, and Slime up and running on Windows is quite similar to the Unix platforms.

1. Download the Windows binary of Emacs-24.3 (emacs-24.3-bin-i386.zip)
2. Unzip the emacs archive and put the emacs folder wherever it suits your needs.
3. Optional: You can set an environment variable called HOME to where your $HOME folder is.

4. Download Slime from github (https://github.com/slime/slime) and extract slime to a suitable folder, e.g. .emacs.d/slime/
5. Edit your .emacs file (which is located in your HOME folder) according to the instructions on the github page. You have to edit the two strings supplied to 'load-path and the inferior-lisp-program in the following example.

;; setup load-path and autoloads
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/dir/to/.emacs.d/slime")
(require 'slime-autoloads)

;; Set your lisp system and, optionally, some contribs
(setq inferior-lisp-program "d:/Applications/ccl/bin/dx86cl64.exe")
(setq slime-contribs '(slime-fancy))

6. Start emacs, hit M-x and type slime (that's ALT+x slime or ESC+x slime) to start the Slime REPL. To exit from the REPL, type , (comma) and then sayoonara.

I hope this helps.
