I'm not totally sure what you mean.  If you mean what I think you mean, that
was what I tried first.  I'll explain my objective.

I'm trying to use Tomboy notes on a Windows machine.  I discovered Tomboy
notes with my Linux machine... Linux of which I personally run exclusive. 
Now what I'm trying to introduce this jewel to my friends, family, and
associates who I haven't converted to Linux yet.  In this effort I installed
Windows on a support machine of which I'm trying to get Tomboy notes

I spent two weeks trying to get Tomboy to install on Windows 7.  I couldn't
get past the error message of the Tomboy installer not recognizing mono is
installed, even though I have installed it numerous times and added the bin
directory to the OS' path in such that "mono" brings up the help screen from
any window.  So I have installed almost 2gigs of Cygwin to try to get Tomboy
working this way.  Thus I'm at the point of trying to get the Mono
dependency installed.  I'm only on Cygwin for two days.  I appear to be
making progress faster here with Cygwin than I was making on Windows.
