There is no version of qubes-windows-tools in the stable repo. The latest 
testing version is 3.2.1-3 and the prior testing release series was 3.0.4-1.

After much testing with Windows 7 on Qubes R3.1, I was unable to get QWT 3.2 
working in a stable fashion. I don't want to lead you astray - this is very 
much YMMV. Everyone seems to have their own personalized experience with 
Windows on Qubes. I think part of the reason for this is that stability is also 
a function of which Windows updates are installed.

I downgraded to QWT 3.0 without PV disk drivers and now have a stable Win 7 
running MS Office with full inter-VM operability.

(Some of the BSODs received while running QWT 3.2:
A device driver has pool.)
