it just came to my mind.

You most probhably need to have Administrator Privileges to install the 
Ext3 filesystem driver on windows.

That means, that you cannot expect this to work with any windows machine 
that you see out there.

However, 95% of windows machines where the user routinely works as an
administrator, might be ok for a start. ;-))

Kind regards
