Can you bottom post replies to make it easier to follow?

For the questions, you need to either create the installer, using 'make 
nsis-installer' and install that, or create a dist zip with 'make zip-dist' and 
unpack that in windows.

If you ran configure without the --enable-binary-packages, it would not install 
the binary packages and so not include them in the dist zip/installer.
