suggests that the tool chain used at CRAN is different.

I don't think Zaid or others on this thread communicated with the Bioc
mailing list; maybe with Kasper directly? The hard-core Windows
64-bitters can check out affxparser 1.19.0 from svn (r42686; 1.19.0 did
build successfully on Windows, and is the version that Windows
biocLite() retrieves for win32). Which is not to say that Kasper won't
address the Windows issues...
