there has been some discussion about a windows port last december. My writeup 
at is 
still valid. Let's first finish the gnome2 port and then think about a 
windows port.


P.S.: Just a side note from Germany: The German online banking library 
aqbanking/aqhbci is already up and running on windows/mingw32. The 
German developer(s) would therefore be more than happy if GnuCash would 
be available on windows as well
