You probably want to do that with me around on IRC. Ideally if someone
is going to work on getting a compiling environment together on
Windows for anything serious, it should be done in some kind of VM
environment so we can just store and distribute that.

Far as compiler, you should be ok with Visual Studio Express 2008 (the
free edition) or newer. You'll need to get the Gtk and dependent libs
from zerowing (they should be linked), but it's been so long those may
need to be updated as well.
