Two weeks and no answer.
Any direction how to setup a NUT client on Windows?
Any kind of documentation anywhere, even a single page?
And if I'm not at the right place, where can I find any help? Any one I
should get in touch with?
There's at least a developer who did this full port to Window?

Thanks for your help!
