Ah, if you meant developer/deken, it's available only as a bash script.
It's theoretically possible in windows, but it requires installing
advanced features, which the "normal user" won't be able to do (it would
be easier for them to learn how to use deken inside Pd).
But nevertheless I'll see if there's any way of also packaging an
executable that allows to run that script.
