We don't provide Windows binaries for all packages.  If you want to
contribute one, the instructions are on CRAN, in bin/windows/ReadMe.

(This is a general point for all package contributors.  CRAN and R does
not have paid labour to provide ports to other platforms, and with well
over 100 packages, the volunteer or two are very thinly stretched.)
