that certainly makes it harder, and means an MSVC set up machine and work-flow 
is required.

Maybe if what is attractive about extended is a unified, libraries-included 
application with an improved GUI it would make more sense to work with the 
pd-l2ork team and build that for windows. They have often expressed a 
willingness to get it built, but a lack of time and a priority to re-base the 
GUI first so that, amongst other things, other OSes are easier.
