Have you made sure the executable works from a shell?  I ran into some
trouble with it myself.  I ran into segfaults, I suspect are related to
the XML parser, on Windows 2000.  Many have gotten it to work, though.
I'm not clear on the exact difference and debugging in MS VC++ can be
rather tedious.

Just as a note, I've been holding off releasing Windows executables
because the internals are changing (for the better, IMO) considerably
and the dependencies are becoming more complex.  My general plan is that
when it's all working well on Unix then worry about Windows.
