INTRODUCTION
------------

Running mozbot on windows is officially unsupported, and does not
work at all when using ActiveState Perl, as it does not support
forking which mozbot uses extensively.

However, mozbot runs successfully on Windows with Cygwin Perl. Tested
on Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, Perl 5.8.4 and higher,
including 5.10. Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 may also work, but
have not been tested, you're on your own.

Once you have Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com) installed with the Perl
package, follow the instructions in the INSTALL file. You will need
to use CPAN and install the required modules for mozbot to work
properly.

Your mileage may vary, it may not work at all for you. Good luck.
