Though Steven Dobb's solution may be the one you want, your bug
reflects a problem that will likely bite you later. It seems that
you did not install the source patches as documented in the instructions
that came with patches 1 & 2. In particular, the STR32 definition
(and each of the other STRxy defintions) needs to be fixed in the file "interfaces;types.lisp".
After making these changes you need to evaluate the following form
(This was missing from the instructions):
After doing that, you can start a fresh MCL, recompile
"appleevent-toolkit.lisp", and choose-process-dialog should work.
Alternatively, you can add the following form to the front of the
file "b1-appleevent-support.lisp", though I suggest patching
(let ((*autoload-traps* nil))
(contents (:array :unsigned-byte 32))))
