umbrello win32 efforts

in the last days i tried to compile umbrello on windows, which was 

I used the free Microsoft VCExpress++ compiler - install instructions 
could be found on 
and somewhere on

Then I performed some tests to see in which area umbrello is running or 
not. So I imported some c++ classes of the kdewin installer from kde svn

Mostly of them could be imported without any problems. Some of them 
raised null pointer exception for example 

I tried to catch this null pointer issues in the appended patch, but the 
way how the fix is made may be not the best.
Additional I recognized some not initialized variables in 
umbrello/umlwidgetcontroller.cpp (see appended patch)

I found some more null pointer issue (for example when saving files) but 
have no idea how to fix and how much efforts it requires.

I think that umbrello would be a nice tool for open source software 
development on windows and that more people are interested to see this 
running and that some of them are willing to spend some time for fixing 

Are there any hints how to fix ?
