I'm going to chime in here since I originally wrote the install guide for Windows using pythonxy.
Have you installed msysgit? I recommended installing msysgit because it gets you a minimal linux-like environment on windows. Also, it includes the mingw32 C compiler.
Therefore, you should be able to run steps 1-6 from  (optionally skipping 4 if the pyparsing package is now available in pythonxy) and then skip to steps 16 and 17.
Notice on step 17 that we are passing the compiler option to the setup.py command. You can potentially try other compilers, but I have just used mingw32 from msysgit so far.
Hope that can get you started. Post back if you get results/stuck. :)
I have a windows7 partition. I followed your instructions to the letter. It worked. 57 test files in 122 sec 2 failures/87 tests.
failed tests: test_base_functions_delta test_input (after acoustics.py)
I have not looked any further as I did not want to linger in windows7 any longer than necessary :-) But looks like the failures are due to comparisons, otherwise there should have been a lot more.
Thanks for the very detailed instructions.
