I looked at it once and believe it requried cygwin to work.  I was looking for 
something to sync files on a laptop with a server.  I'd tried windows offline 
files but found it wouldn't sync a file if it's extension was .dbf.  So much 
for backing up ACT the easy way.

I abandoned the effort since I didn't wan to load cygwin on laptops to use
