Hi Tom,

To be honest I use FreeBSD Unix and Mageia Linux in my business. I do
not use Microsoft systems in my home or for my business. I do install
and support Microsoft systems for our company clients that need or want
them. However, the rough steps would be:

        * Install a web server with PHP - like Apache for Microsoft
        * Install PostgreSQL for Microsoft
        * Install Firefox for Microsoft
        * Get all these working
        * Then install LedgerSMB and get it working

Frankly, looking at that makes me tired just thinking about all the work
needed to make this play with a Microsoft system. I think you would be
better off setting up a cheap Linux system with Apache, PostgreSQL and
LedgerSMB, then connecting to that over your LAN using Firefox on your
Microsoft PC.
