Yes it does.
Before using it you should download and install the following packages:

Cairo [1]
Python [2]
PyCairo [3]
Bazaar [4]

After installing everything above, open a command line (start>run>cmd) and type: bzr branch lp:cairoplot/1.1
That will download cairoplot to your computer. After that, all you need to do is include CairoPlot on your project and use it.
Let me know if it worked.

[1] http://cairographics.org/download/
[2] http://www.python.org/download/
[3] http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/pycairo/1.4/
[4] http://launchpad.net/bzr/1.6/1.6.1/+download/bzr-setup-1.6.1-1.exe

OK. I just have some doubts in this process:

Cairo [1] Which package should I download ? "Glade/GTK+ for Windows Toolkit" or "official GTK+ for Windows page" or "Inkscape Win32 Development Support Files page" ?
Python [2]: Which version should I download? 2.6.3 or 3.1.1 ?
PyCairo [3] OK.
Bazaar [4] OK.

Thanks in advance.

I got it! :)

Cairo [1] Should be the module "cairo"(as an individual module) inside the package "official GTK+ for Windows page".
Python [2] It's the 2.xx version.

How did you succeed compiling pycario for windows? I downloaded the cario libary from official GTK+ (and even the whole bundle)
However when I try to build pycairo I always get told the cario libary is missing.

Actually I didn't compile Cairo library in Widows. I've done the 4 steps in the first message and in the end I compiled CairoPlot (run > execute > cmd <enter>) then you should just go to the CairoPlot location and do the following:

python setup.py --install
or
python setup.py --build

Then... after this I'm also stuck. Can someone please help? ;-)

As promissed before in another thread (https://answers.launchpad.net/cairoplot/+question/85832) this is a step-by-step tutorial that guides the user on the process to install all the needed software in his/her Windows XP machine in order to make CairoPlot to work.
