Hi Andreas, Hans

That would make a lot of sense, but sadly, it is not so.

The Windows distribution includes no examples. When you load the 
examples menu option, you get a warning that tells you they have not 
been installed! The menu system it then loads is showy, and allows you 
to select the examples - which then fail.

Within the API docs, the links to Model/View Classes and model/view 
Framework point to missing files (all links to examples also fail).

The assistant contains just the introduction page and nothing else. (No 
helpful comments about finding it on-line).

And rather worryingly, All the links claim to point to 4.7.4's 
documentation. When you get there,  its all 4.6.

So it would appear some dim-witted moronic fool has removed the "first 
tier" of helpful docs from the windows release. No wonder things are so 
exasperatingly difficult!

Now that I have found the on-line docs, and I will persist.
