    Installed the latest Windows C++ client. Was able to get this version of AlethZero working, connected to peers, and mining!

    Don't know if this is the right place to note the following but here are a few things I encountered:

    - I sent some wei from one of my addresses (address a) to another (address b). As that transaction was pending, I sent another transaction from (address a) to a third address (address c) of mine. I copied the address (address c) incorrectly when filling out the transaction and when I clicked send, it crashed AlethZero. When I reopened, (address b) was no longer listed as one of my 'owned accounts' although the transaction was listed in the blockchain. The other transaction went through fine.

    - I sent a note with one of my transactions but don't appear to be able to view that note.

    - My fee for sending a transaction increased when I added a note. However, when the transaction was added to the blockchain the original fee (as if there were no note) was charged.

    - I have had the same missing libwinpthread-1.dll error with the last two versions of eth.exe and testeth.exe.

    Am running the Windows POC client. All seems to work as expected except every now and then my account's balance changes downward. I don't send from this account, only mine, for a few days it will go steadily upwards, got up to 397ether then dropped down to 125, then climbed back up to 500+ and today was back down to 100. The account is dbc3084dd5beff679da7f91788b8a8160503b53a. I know it's not real yet but thought you might want know this is happening.

    sorry, but I don't quite follow the Git Hub building on Windows instructions here:
    Are we saying I have to install Ubuntu on my Windows 7 machine or I have to set up Visual Studio Basic 2013?
    Ok, I decided to try Visual Studio Express but I have to wait to understand the instructions because everything is in Japanese.
    I'd like to try mining just to see if it works.
    If anyone else is a neophyte in this I'd appreciate your comments.

    Try using the C++ Version for windows instead of a build from source..
