Thank you to everyone who tried (in vain) to get the windows host and phone app working.  In short, there were still some large bugs added after packaging the installer, which made it impossible to get working more or less.  Also, I had ignored the fact that it is almost impossible to get Google’s USB Phone driver and to install it unless you are a developer.  This version (0.12) of the windows host and the latest (0.12) phone app should be usable.  It has just been tested on several fresh installations of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit), with a T-mobile G1/HTC Dream.
