I'm neither a kde dev (just a user) nor an MS user (tho I was until MS 
pushed me off with eXPrivacy, which crossed a line I wouldn't cross, so I 
have them to thank for me finally making the jump to Linux =:^), but 

As you appear to be aware, MS Windows isn't a primary kde target, and 
AFAIK most kde devs don't test kde on it.  Many of them don't 
particularly care about it either -- while most won't deliberately block 
it, many don't really care about it either, nor let it get in the way of 
further development on Linux (or the BSDs, to a lessor extent).

The kde-windows porting is done by a smaller group of kde devs that /are/ 
interested in it working there.  They have a separate kde web site 
subdomain and mailing list, etc.  While your post is welcome here (this 
is, after all, the general kde list and kde-windows certainly fits), it's 
not likely to get the level of help here that you'd hopefully get on the 
kde-windows list.

So, consider checking out the https://windows.kde.org landing page, which 
has links to the kde-windows techbase, IRC channel, and list, among other 
things.  They're more likely to be able to help you (more than simply 
pointing you at the lander page, as I'm doing) than most/all regulars
