[PD] pd 0.37.1 Windows installer release candidate

Windows has no .pdrc unfortunately.  Anyone know why the .pdrc file is 
disabled on Windows?  I know my .emacs file works fine with Emacs NT, 
so Windows can do files that start with a ".".

The doubleclicking is a bad hack to allow Pd to be installed anywhere.  
Its set in the registry.  Its in HKCR (I think its called "Classes" in 
regedit.exe) then Pure.Data\shell\open\command

There are a number of ways that it could be done better,  the installer 
could set the path to pd.exe in pd.bat when installing, Windows could 
use a .pdrc, I am sure there are other ways.  But I basically never use 
Windows so I have little time to maintain this installer.  Volunteers 
are always appreciated.   For example Bob Falesch is helping me get the 
OSC from CVS to compile with just a 'nmake'.
