Hi Eran,

Windows is not supported as a target platform on ToT.

Virgile Bello has a branch on his github account 
(https://github.com/xen2/lldb/tree/msvc12) which does, though. Ive tried 
it with small gcc-built dwarf2 debug binaries. It works enough to stop 
at breakpoints, stepping, viewing the stack, etc. You may need to do 
some merging to trunk, last time I tried the branch was a few months ago.
