Our Windows guru and package builder (Sigbjorn Finne) is currently 
offline (on holiday?) but he should be back soon.  The Windows nightly 
builds are still running, so you can grab a snapshot build which is 
essentially 6.4.2:

We are able to release VH under a BSD license now.  The code is in darcs 
and BSD licensed:  I think the 
current binary distribution still has the old license, but we'll 
hopefully refresh the distribution at some point.
