Sorry, not yet. No one has yet put in the time to make sure it's a
supported solution. Hopefully we can get this sorted out before 2.0.
Contributions are of course welcome :)

A couple of notes: MD is known to trigger GTK# marshalling bugs when
used with the .NET framework, so it has to be run with Mono on
Windows. You also need the WindowsPlatform addin, which can be built
on Linux. Also, most of the difficulties of building MD on Windows are
in getting the build system to work, so it's probably a *lot* easier
to build it on Linux and bring the binaries over to Windows. Note that
you'd have to build against GTK# 2.10 or 2.8, since GTK# 2.12 isn't
available on Windows yet.

A shortcut may be to grab my trunk builds from
and extract the rpm archive. The SLE_10 builds target GTK# 2.8. You'll
still need to build the WindowsPlatform addin, but it's trivial to
build manually.
