I'm not sure what's going on, I'm able to install it, run it and listen to the server, and then once I open http://localhost:3000/ on a web browser, I get a white blank screen, with no HTML on the source code.

I tried running several console.log() around the server and app scripts, and noticed that model.subscribe "rooms.#{roomName}, (err, room) ->" won't trigger the callback.

This does work on Linux though.

The issue is likely that connect-gzip doesn't work on Windows. The next version of Express / Connect has a default gzip middleware, so we'll be switching to that as soon as the new Express release is available.

For now, remove connect-gzip and replace the gzip.staticGzip with express.static. I think it should work after that.

This should now be fixed

FYI on how to make Derby work on Windows, see pull-request: #40

Actually, see #42 for the latest on windows support...
