I did try the windows port, it did not work either. 
here is a direct link to the download page

I tried with 2.6 stable17, and 2.6 stable16.  Same result. 

first time I got an error
FATAL: Unable to open configuration file: c:/squid/etc/squid.conf:

there is no such file. There was squid.conf.default, so I did
copy squid.conf.default squid.conf

I ran it again and got a different error
FATAL: cache_dir c:/squid/var/cache: (2) No such file or directory
Squid Cache (Version 2.6.STABLE17): Terminated abnormally.
CPU Usage: 0.030 seconds = 0.010 user + 0.020 sys

I tried it on another machine, since on this machine (maybe a bad win
xp) I have been able to run servers, but have had problems when
installing a server as a service, like openssh runs ./sshd but not net
start sshd. Anyhow, it did not work on the computer with the fully
working win xp either. same errors
