Hi Christophe,

So there's no way to get this plugin except building it myself. Building 
stuff under Windows is not for the faint-of-heart, this will scare my 
fellow (windows-only) sysadmins. :-(

Wel, this won't work for any practical purposes right now.  :-(

I tried the three latest virt-viewer for windows releases and 
virt-viewer doesn't work at all. Complains about a missing DLL. Invoking 
remote-viewer directly does work, but I can't make spice+tls work (only 
plain spice, insecure) and it's stated on the release notes that 
spice+ssh won't work in windows.
