I deleted my LUA_DEV and LUA_PATH environment variables (they conflict with Telltale's older games). I don't know what's causing Charlie's problem, but mine seems a little less cryptic. coxpcall comes with LfW: shouldn't it have a problem overwriting it? (This may have been an older version of the LuaRocks zip, I did it a couple of weeks ago.)

Hi, Stuart,

I just downloaded LfW 5.1.4-37, installed it, then downloaded from and copied
the contents of the .zip file to where I installed LfW. "luarocks
install wsapi-xavante" ran with no problems. Could you check where
your LUA_DEV environment variable and your PATH are pointing? Maybe an
older version of LuaRocks and/or LfW are conflicting with our newest
installation (and the same can be happening with your friend).

After extracting the LuaRocks for LfW zip over my desktop's LfW 5.1.4-34
installation, I was able to install wsapi-xavante just fine. However, my
friend who extracted it over his LfW 5.1.4-35 installation had this error:

C:\Users\Charlie>luarocks install wsapi-xavante

Error: Failed unpacking rock file:

(Also, his changes.txt file says 5.1.4-34 at the beginning of the 5.1.4-35
changes section.)

On my tablet running LuaRocks extracted over Lua for Windows 5.1.4-37, I get
