Which version of gcc are you using? I use 3.4.2..

I tried to use the open source version of expect for NT (ExpectNT or 
something like that) which is rather outdated compared to the main trunk of 
the unix version. The problem is that dejagny uses some functionality not 
present in the outdated ExpectNT. If you can spare some bucks try an updated 
Expect for Windows with dejagnu. I haven't tried this option yet.
