I suspect that if you are waiting on Qt4/KDE 4 you may be waiting some
time.  But there is no GPL'd Qt 3 on Windows so you would need the
commercial edition.

Another problem is that Umbrello is itself GPL'd so we would need the
permission of all the copyright holders to link it against a non-GPL'd
Qt.  That should be possible but may not be.

I have no experience of developing on Windows so I wouldn't know where
to begin, I recommend asking jstaniek for help though
