Loading lisp files with every Progecad start

I carefully followed the instructions to create a icaddoc.lsp file to load the lisp routines I use daily - here it is:
(load "C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\ProgeCAD\progeCAD\R13\Structural Steel\steel.lsp")
(load "C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\ProgeCAD\progeCAD\R13\Doors\d2k3.lsp")
(load "C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\ProgeCAD\progeCAD\R13\Bline\Bline.lsp")
(load "C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\ProgeCAD\progeCAD\R13\Bi.lsp")

I have entered the support path in "Blocks-Support file search paths".  When Progecad starts up, it only recognizes the first program listed above and fails to load it.  It doesn't even read the rest of the file.

If I can't load these lisp routines, I can't use Progecad.

Would appreciate some help.

Have you tried loading each lisp routine by itself via appload or manually to ensure it operates before attempting to load it automatically?

Try turning the folder delimiters around and using forward facing slashes rather than backslashes. For instance, use (load "c:/Users/Bill/AppData/ etc.

Yes, thank you - each lisp routine works fine loaded manually.  I did as you suggested and turned the delimiters around and that worked for the first lisp program in my icaddoc.lsp file.  

However, the commands after the first one are ignored.  So the steel.lsp loads but nothing else.

Is there a fix for this?
