Hello sorry for the big delay , I thought of trying to install VideoCache again since i have CYGWIN installed correctly on Windows Server . I also have SQUID2.7STABLE7 ( WINDOWS VERSION) installed and working with PERL SCRIPT as well .. I read the manual of CYGWIN and I had the python installed on Windows (Windows Version) but I have IIS7 not apache ,,.. do you think it should work well ?

I guess there will be problem with directory structure. If you cygwin can overcome that, then it should be fine. Also, apache alias will be cool. Apache is available for windows as well ( Why not give it a shot :)

Thank You!
