We at ANSTO (though not me at this time) are using McStas on PCs
with windows. The mc3d & mc2d programs that replace the Perl
graphics modules are on the Risoe site but are not the most up
to date, and have some bugs. I use the free Borland C++ compiler
that you can get over the web (it is a 9Meg download).
I haven't looked at any of the above for more than a year, and I
can't find the information that I used to submit my contribution.
As well I haven't compiled a new version of McStas for a while,
but some of my colleagues may have updated it.
If whoever is now responsible for the site could remind me, I
will zip up the various files and put them on the web site.
Cheers, Ross Piltz

Ross Piltz contributed a GUI for Windows which also includes a
description for installing McStas on a Windows computer. More
information is found at http://neutron.risoe.dk/download/contrib/mc3d/ .
