Actually, Oliver Gathmann already contributed a Windows port for 4XPath.  I 
just never put it on the FTP because I assumed most people would want 4XSLT as 
well.  I went ahead and put up Oliver's binary at


I'd like to stress that we haven't tested this much in-house (we just ran a 
basic test on it), and that if you have any support questions, please post 
them to the 4Suite mailing list (4suite@fourthought.com), which Oliver read as 
well as Fourthought staff, and the appropriate person might be able to help.

Note that we are working on a more permanent solution for 4XSLT and 4XPath on 
Windows (it's not just the platform port: we are moving the packages to use 
BisonGen, which can already generate Windows binaries).  The ETA on this is 
still in April.
