Still no HiPE support on Windows I'm afraid.
I plan on implementing that, but it's not the highest priority
item on my Erlang TODO list, and it's made problematic by the
hackery in the Erlang build system for Windows. My initial goal
is to make it work with mingw's gcc (as msvc doesn't support ISO C99).
