Guppy doesn't compile on Windows. Pretty much full-stop. It uses static
references to DLL functions, which on Windows is not allowed.
I've tried patching it to remove such things, and I finally got it to
compile, only to have it go "boom!" in actual use.
If you can get it to work, certainly post something so that I can cheer.
