I double checked and can confirm that the executables in GIT are very old. So I tried to compile the current version for Windows. I found that I had to change lots 
of places (basically all the new files written by KO) to make it work again, so it took me half a day, but now should be fine.

I'm not sure if it's a good idea to keep .exe files in GIT, maybe we should remove it some day, but for the moment I updated the executables to the current 
version. Feedback welcome.
