While my total test time with 
is still measured in minutes on Win 7, I have not seen it crash, and I
have exported reports in HTML and opened them with Firefox, Chrome and
IE, although I had to let IE use Active-X, or whatever it said, and the
graphs appeared to display correctly.  I did not try stacked bars, which
may be a separate issue.  I would encourage other brave Windows users to
test that release or one of the two more recent releases on their own
test files.
