Dig through Microsoft's documentation or ask some Windows programmers  
- this is not actually a Squeak problem. Once you figure that out it  
should be fairly simple to add to the Squeak VM (though it might  
break stuff, but for your own development it should be fine).

Still - why do you bother with the Windows VM when you want to  
develop for OLPC? Install Linux, either as dual-boot or in an  
emulator (Qemu is free and works nicely), and concentrate on the  
actual problems rather than fictive ones. That way you can also  
experience and test the Sugar integration we are working on.
