So, I copied the svn to my local disk and started the tilesGen.pl script with the Windows command line. The tilesGen script starts, but after 1 second it stops with the following failure:

You might want to configure "Zip" in the tilesAtHome.conf to point to
your 7-zip command line executable.  (not sure if that exists and you'd
still have to test if it works the same way as "zip")
so that should read
Zip=C:\program files\7-zip\7z.exe # or something like that.

Please give feedback about this, we have too few windows testers, and
update the wiki-page of tiles at home with any useful stuff you might want
to share with other windows users.
