    120 executable file (.exe) while it's running. In order to overcome this restriction you must

    122 (rebuild-ccl :full t) command from the copy.

    124   You can do everything that the :FULL T option
    125 does besides rebuilding the kernel via:

     127including the wx86cl.exe - so make sure you still have your copy .) Run the (rebuild-ccl :full t)
     128command again in order to rebuild all.
