This might be a stupid question but I cannot figure this out for the life of me nor can I find a reference online which answers my question. I have been using Edwin (this is my first time using Emacs) to follow along with the MIT Opencourseware 6.001 class and I cannot figure out how to load a file. Upon startup, I type C-x C-f to make a new file "test.scm". I then input some Scheme code and type C-x C-s to save it. But then if I close Edwin, start it back up,and type C-x C-f test.scm, I just get a blank slate. If instead I type M-x dired, scroll to test.scm and hit RET, I still g

Ok, I just did what you did and it worked fine for me. I also tried just typing my scheme code into the scheme buffer (skipping the c-x c-f) then saving (and naming the file) with c-x c-s. That worked to. The only thing I can think of is you've got an incomplete install of mit-scheme. I'm running on an amd64 debian testing linux system and I had to install mit-scheme from a 32-bit tarball. In the instructions it told me I had to put some stuff in my bashrc to create some viarabes for edwin. Maybe you've still got to do that part.

I have the exact same issue, installing on two different Win 7 and Win 8 machines. Documentation says, 'simply click to install' or words to that effect. I can create files but when I try to re-edit them they are blank. If I 'load' them, the execute correctly. I am saving as .scm file. Maybe the wrong extension for re-editing? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I'm running vista and can't get it to work either. Using the dired command shows the files in the directory but using windows explorer shows the directory as empty.
