@Alessio Sangalli (as an alternative to running a VM):

not certain about POV-Ray working without "installing", it does need its .inc
etc files.  to answer your question - yes, I found Cygwin works well under MS
Windows, and since that gives you a fairly complete UNIX-like environment, you
can do a regular install from source.
