Did you build this version or was it the binary version that is
available ?

Insight on Windows has some problems. I recieved a mail a while ago from
someone who managed to get it to go but never a patch. I have never been
able to get it completely sorted out. Maybe we could take this off the
RTEMS list as it is not related to RTEMS and see if it can be sorted out
