Once I tried cygwin 64bit under a Windows 7 64bit and the AOO build did 
not work.
As AOO is a 32bit application under all Windows platforms I think it 
makes sense to have an 32bit build environment under Windows.

On [1] a specific NSIS version is mentioned - this one should work.
I do not know. if a newer version is available and also works.

I assume that this should work, if it is the 32bit version.

Do not hesitate to ask further questions and/or to change the wiki.
