anyone with access to Windows (real or VM), please test...

This is a crazy thing to do after Beta 4. And I think it means I will have
to do a Beta 5. But I managed to get a working Qt5 build - by switching to
no longer building a 32bit binary.

So instead the new Windows installer is 64bit. But I think it will solve
several issues that have come up (the weird printer problem, the look and
feel regression with switching back to Qt4,  a couple of problems with
completers, etc).

But for this to be viable it really needs to be tested. By a lot of people
on lots of different machines. Windows XP through 8.1. Different
localizations, etc.

I know many of you are usually on Mac and Linux - but I know that most
have you at least have access to a Windows box.

So please, take a few minutes and try to take this one through its paces.
Including printing, downloading from a divecomputer, accessing the web
service and, etc.

Please report both success and failure. I really want to know how many
people have tested this on how diverse a set of platforms.
