I have no idea what to do with a patch.  Your name appears everywhere when searching, so I thought I might drop you a line as see if you could help.  If not I'll resort to a linux install, but that seems like overkill for my need to flash one chip.

Unfortunately, there are no Windows executables available to the public
yet and I don't expect this to change in the next few weeks (someone
would have to update the patches, merge them, test the result, then make
Windows executables available to the public).

The next best offer is a DOS executable (which won't run under Windows,
but at least it will run under DOS). It is available for download, but
there is a crucial limitation which may affect flashing, so it is not
totally endorsed yet. We're in the process of testing a fix for said
limitation, and will be releasing updated DOS binaries shortly.

As an alternative, there are Linux Live CDs which contain flashrom, so
you can avoid installing Linux (just run it from CD) and still use flashrom.

I hope this information helps.
