Thanks.  As you suggested, I was using %LOCALAPPDATA% instead of just user-homedir-pathname (which is C:\Users\Mitch\)

Can you tell us what version of asdf you have? (asdf:asdf-version)?

Will you please also report what user-homedir-pathname returns? It should be the parent of your common-lisp directory (I.e., the same as the value of %LOCALAPPDATA%; if not, we have found your problem. If so, we need to look further.

This is with LW 7.1.1 and Win 10. 

I don't know how to get ASDF to find a file. My environment variable %LOCALAPPDATA% is C:\Users\Mitch\AppData\Local

I have the files test.asd and test.lisp in c:\Users\Mitch\AppData\Local\common-lisp\test.asd

;;; test.asd --------------------------------
(defsystem "test"
  :components ((:file "test")))
;;; --------------------------------------------

;;; test.lisp ------------------------------------

(defpackage :test
  (:use :common-lisp))

(in-package :test)

(defconstant *golden-ratio* 1.6180339887)
;;; --------------------------------------------

In LW, I do:
CL-USER 1 > (require "asdf")
CL-USER 2 > (asdf:load-system "test")

and get:
Error: Component "test" not found

Thanks for any advice.
