I can't tell you whether RBTools works well on Windows platform as I do not
use it on this OS but here you have the manual how to install and configure
As for creating RR (review request) I guess it depends on scenario (for
example whether you are reviewing the pre committed code or post committed
code). Additionally, AFAIK there is an option to manually create RR but I
highly recommend automating it (using "rbt post" and python scripts).
The simplest approach to create a RR for a fresh code would be.. to make a
fake small commit before uploading your main code. Or just generating
(somehow) the diff file manually and also creating RR manually. I guess so.
HTH, correct me if I wrote anything misleading.
