It seems gromacs can be compiled on windows directly if you a bit lucky.

And what's the sense of this task? Do you have a cluster running windows?

If yes, is there any special procedure that I should follow in this case or I just perform standard installation with MPI support? Also, which MPI driver should I use? Is Open MPI suitable? Specifically, I want to perform parallel run in a network of PCs running Windows XP. I use Gromacs 4.0.4, Cygwin version 2.573.2.3.
