I installed 1.2.x and svn trunk on Windows 7, 32-bit once.  The
process should be largely identical.

In general, your best bet is to install Vanilla Perl for 1.2.x or
Strawberry Perl for trunk or 1.3.x.  From there, you can install  the
application largely as you would on Linux (cpan Module::Install; perl
Makefile.PL; make--- do not make install at this point). You will also
need to have a web server (IIS and Apache should both work for either
version), and PostgreSQL.

The only difference between Windows and Linux at that point is that
you have to run the appropriate shebang utility (in dists/win32) for
your version of Perl.

If you get stuck or need help, feel free to email this list.  If you
need someone to actually do the install for you, there are a few of us
who are probably quite happy to do so commercially.

Best Wishes,
