I used windows version to donwload and play with a Canon camera. I
work fine during 1 hour and crash one time. I used code from trunk
(1.3.0). Now we have released 1.4.0.

As we fix a lots of code between release under Linux, problem can be
fixed also under Windows. This is why i recommend to use current code
from svn trunk under Windows.

Yes, you can build yourself, as i explained in this tutorial :
