I am trying to see what Bioconductor has to offer in the way of flow cytometry analysis and have been going through some vignettes (e.g., Gopalakrishnan, 2009), one of which illustrates flowQ.  Unfortunately, there is no windows binary and my efforts to install from source have not yet been successful.  Then, I came across an somewhat old post that suggested flowQ might not be supported on Windows any more.

What is the status of using flowQ on the Windows 7/8.1 platform with R 3.1.2?  Will there either be a binary or is there a link to install from source instructions that might help with the process?  Any insights into wha tthe issues have been?

flowQ is still marked as unsupported on Windows. I will let the authors explain why and whether Windows support can be added in future. We encourage package authors to make their packages work on all platforms whenever possible.

flowQ failed to build on windows due to the incompatible ImageMagick command it uses to generate `jpg` figures for html report.  I would recommend you to switch to linux-like OS or try QUALIFIER package for the QA tasks.
