RepSnapper Windows build?

I think the link from the "new, and sexier place" to the "curent" windows build seems to link directly back to an original "OLD" version and has a file size of 1,260kb.


Thus it is not the current version.. is the current version broken for Windows hence the link back to the old version?

I have been using the r351 version this version displays on the "Simple" Tab the version number "r351 Windows x86" and has a file size of 1,363kb from this location the UI is diffrent so maybe this is a newer version this is also confusing as the directory indicates that it should be version 353 ??.


Is there a problem with the New version as neither my self or my partner could get the get the make to work as directed in the the doucumentation page?

Could anyone sugest what is missing from these instructions for a windows build?

This is the last i've heard about the windows build, from another topic:

I'm also eagerly awaiting a new windows build :-(

do they have a donation to help them with the development or even a flatter account for them. there has to be some way we can dangle a carrot for them to move a little faster.
