i created a Lighttpd Drupal Bundle for Windows including "Clean URLs" capability and a easy installer
i created it for myself some days ago and i released my first version now for public on my website http://www.bundle.at
i think WLMPD is a very nice testing and developing environment for windows.
i will also create a XAMPP version in the near future, including many CMS-Systems.
have fun with it and feel free to report bugs and suggestions for improvements
