I'm one of the authors, and you are correct that Windows is not
currently supported.

There are a couple options :

1) install Cygwin ( )

I think SandWeb should work under this environment. You'll also need
a web server, like Apache, that is capable of running CGI applications.

2) SandWeb is very modular, if you know any Perl you can look in
   the lib/SandWeb/File/ directory, this is where subclasses of
   File for different platforms lives ( Unix is currently the only
   class in there ). Also, lib/SandWeb/ would probably need
   to be modified ( maybe split into subclasses too ).

If you want to get it running anytime soon, I reccommend option #1.
Native multi-platform support is nice, but since we've frozen
SandWeb and are just working on minor bugs and docs for the upcoming
beta release, we've decided that shooting for POSIX when we need
to call outside of Perl is good enough for now.

Also, please address SandWeb questions to the user's list :

So we don't create long threads on the info-cvs list for people
who don't want a web-based CVS client :)
