Yes, there's a few kind of catch-22 situations going on. In short, yes,
we've finally(!) begun official support of Windows programming and some
minimal support has been added for use with VC++ as a backend, but does not
yet include support of DLLs. Whether that can get into the next release or
not is still up in the air. Existing licensees can get an alpha version of
what is currently available. The plan is: minimal support, then full
support incl DLLs, then some still to be determined special strict mode /
Windows mode combo, then said for as many additional backends as
possible/makes sense.
