    106 Please be aware that this is '''experimental''', and likely to have a few bugs, so it should not be your only backup strategy. Comments and feedback are very welcome, preferably to the [MailingLists mailing lists].
     106To install the Windows client, please follow these steps:
    107107
    108 A pre-compiled Windows client is available [WindowsClientReleases here]. Unless you have a deep desire to build your own binaries from source, we recommend that you use one of these, preferably the latest one.
     108 * Read the [KnownBugsWin32 known issues with the Windows client] page
     109 * Download the [WindowsClientReleases latest pre-compiled client]
     110 * Follow the [CompilationOnWindows#Installation installation instructions]
    109111
    110 The source code can be downloaded from [source:/box/trunk here] using Subversion, and compiled by following [CompilationOnWindows these instructions].
    111 
    112 Windows users should use (or build) one of these Windows-specific versions - compiling and using the main Box Backup source code under Cygwin is known to have problems.
    113 
    114 There are some known issues with the Windows client at present - see the [wiki:KnownBugsWin32 known bugs] page for more details.
     112If you have a deep desire to build your own binaries from source, it is possible, but if it doesn't work then we may not be able to help you much. The source code can be downloaded from [source:/box/trunk here] using Subversion, and compiled by following [CompilationOnWindows these instructions].
