You have to know Inno. I took care for the Windows builds for a while and it was a large pain to get it started. I'm not a natural windows hacker, although I was developing on windows some years ago and know my way around. Additionally the whole cludge (was/is) very fragile so that new releases pretty reliably required tweaking the build environment. As Tim said one day: You need to work/develop on windows on a daily basis to be able to cut releases for it. I'd second this for any platform actually.
