Someone asked me this the other day, so I am strangely knowledgeable (^_^).

Currently (2009-04-14) there is no working Windows version available
for download as the lisp license has expired. I have added a note
about this to LkbInstallation.  Ann and Stephen know about it, and
hope to fix it at some stage (I think).

You could try going down through the builds until you find one that
works :-), apparently the older versions should work, as they were
built with a permanent license.  I am afraid I don't know which ones
work and which don't.   If you, or someone, does this, could you add
to the wiki the address of the latest working version, and/or email me
and I will add it.

Yours, not actually using Windows personally,
