Windows is a normal target for the bindings library and gets regular regression tests with different configurations
(VC8, VC9, with clapack-3.1.1, MKL)
(cygwin gcc-3.4.4, gcc-4.3.2, with lapack compiled by g77 or gfortran)
It's planed to ACML to this list of tested configurations.

But I'm aware that some users might have problems setting up these configurations.

Some users had questions on how to make it work under Windows, but as you can see from the threads, the requirements of the individual users are impossible to predict:

What I could do would be to write a text on how to execute the regression tests (using bjam) with the different configurations. The interested user could then take a look at the jamfiles to find out about the compile and link options used.

Do you mean something like

All versions of lapack I tested on win32 also worked with boost binding lib (I would have tried to fix the problem otherwise). win64 might be a different story, but I don't know.

Yes, here are my experiences: "It works for me."
