Greenstone and Koha are for 2 totally different things. Greenstone is
a digital repository and Koha  a library management system.
Greenstone you store digital content in, and search over. Koha you run
a library with.

So first off which is it you actually want to do? Secondly the windows
version is hideously out of date. You are far better off installing
the latest stable version on linux.
