download solfege-x.z.y.zip and you'll find some more instructions
inside, in the INSTALL.win32.tzt file.
Basically you need Python 2.0.1 for windows and two other small .zip:
You don't need a complete cygwin environment.
This is beginning to be become a faq, so I'll try to update the website
Let me know if you have problems installing and running Solfege.

I did this and encountered some problems. First let me say I know
nothing about windows, I'm a unix type of fellow, but for various
reasons I need to have this running on windows boxen.
This is what happened when I tried to install 1.2.1
For some reason, the solfege-1.2.1.win32.zip file does not unpack
cleanly on the computer I am using. It gives messages like ("Can't
create: "), it seems that it had some trouble creating the directories,
since everything ends up in the top level directory. So I untarred the
tar.gz file on a unix system, and copied it over to the windows
machine. I installed Python20 in C:\Python20 and the gtk+ and pygtk
files in C:\Programs\pygtk, and the solfege directory is copied into
C:\Programs. The path in the solfege.bat file for Python looks correct
to me: I executed the solfee.bat file by clicking on its icon in one
of those file viewer windows, and got:
C:\Program Files\solfege-1.2.1>rem You need to edit the next line so Windows can
find the python interpreter
C:\Program Files\solfege-1.2.1>set HOME=\home
C:\Program Files\solfege-1.2.1>set PYTHONPATH=..\pygtk
C:\Program Files\solfege-1.2.1>python solfege.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "solfege.py", line 25, in ?
ImportError: No module named configureoutput
I tried running this several times, as recommended, but no
joy. I couldn't find the \home\solfegercX.Y file, or actually,
\home. Operating system is Windows ME.
Thanks very much for any help you can give me.
