For GridFlow: it still hasn't been done yet, but last time someone got
stuck there was trying to compile GridFlow with only 64M of RAM, which is
not enough. So there is still hope that it would work, if you have more
RAM than that.

If you are willing to try, you will need Cygwin and Ruby (which is
included with Cygwin) and you will need either X11 or SDL for display.

And you won't have any support for cameras. That only works with Linux
yet, and I'm about to add it to the Mac port; but anything on Windows is
not in the plans, unless someone else contributes that to the project.
