Thank you for offering help! We were already able to make a Windows port of 
AspectC++. At the moment we are doing some minimal tests. It will probably be 
available for download next week. This version is not based on Cygwin. In 
this first version there will be tons of problems with parsing the header 
files of your compiler and with the performance, because windows headers are 
usually huge. Our goal for this first version is only to let the example 
programs work, not more.

Source code and bug fixes would require an open source license, which we 
haven't yet. We are currently replacing the C++ parser part completely, thus 
such license wouldn't help us at the moment. For the time after this big 
modification we are considering to switch to the GPL, but I can't tell you a 
date yet.

about new releases will be posted there.
