I am using Vim 7.3 with Pathogen on Windows, I have Pathogen setup in ~/vimfiles/autoload/pathogen.vim and SnipMate ~/vimfiles/bundle/snipmate.vim/. SnipMate works fine when it is the only plugin loaded by Pathogen, whenever I add other plugins SnipMate seems to no longer work.

filetype off
call pathogen#runtime_append_all_bundles()
filetype plugin indent on
set nocompatible

That is the top of my _vimrc file and other plugins seem to load fine when I add them. It's just SnipMate stops working and I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this issue, and maybe has a solution?

set nocompatible should come first, I think. How do you add other plugins, in the plugin folder or in bundle? – romainl Apr 12 '11 at 7:10
I extracted them into their own folders in ~/vimfiles/bundle/. – Tom Bell Apr 12 '11 at 8:07
That's the normal way. You didn't list the other plugins you are trying to install. You didn't say if there were error messages or simply nothing. Try installing one plugin at a time, at each new plugin relaunch Vim and check if snipMate works. Does any of the other plugins use the tab key? snipMate and superTab are known to be incompatible because of this. – romainl Apr 12 '11 at 11:47

I tracked down the issue and have solved it. I was using which has a snippets folder containing a ruby-sinatra.snippets file for snipmate.vim. Moving this folder into the snipmate.vim snippets folder seemed to resolve all the issues I was having.
