Announce: Windows version of LDTP - GUI test automation tool

I'm excited to announce Windows version of Linux Desktop Testing Porject (WinLDTP) !!!

Special thanks:
VMware Inc permitting me to open source my work
VMware Desktop Engineering QE team to test it extensively
David Connet for creating the WinLDTP installer

Existing LDTP API's are compatible with WinLDTP, if there is any mismatch then we have to fix it ;-)

It uses the Accessibility libraries to poke through the application's user interface. We strive to help in building a quality desktop.
