Not presently, but a port would be would be pretty straight forward.

Gnome-RDP is basically a front end to the Linux apps rdesktop, tightvnc, 
and ssh. Windows support would basically require mapping the arguments 
to the respective windows versions of each program. Ssh would probably 
be a little sticky.

Also, GnomeRDP uses the Gnome Keyring service to store passwords. This 
would require some reworking for a windows port.
