I am not running Coda on Windows. I have considered this but without 
success. First of all non-cygwin version is impossible (because Coda is 
strictly POSIX, so in any case you need a POSIX wrapper around a 
non-POSIX Win-API). Second, even publicly available a7.exe client does 
not work with new versions of Cygwin (it looks like Cygwin has changed 
some hardcoded parameters, so a7 is broken now, I did not managed to 
launch it). Publishing of new version of windows coda-client  is stucked 
into some controversion about third-party libraries, so when new version 
will be available is unknown.
This is information I have gathered while reading archives of this 
I may be wrong.
Good luck.
