Works good on my XP VM.

If it's not too late, any chance of sticking the geany-themes in there? 
It's just ~20 .conf files from our geany-themes repo needs to go to same 
place as alt.conf theme.

If not, no biggie, just thought it would be cool to have the themes 
packaged for windows but a separate installer/package is overkill for 
some .conf files, IMO.
