One thing that seems confusing, is that the Windows front end is called 
Sword. This means you can download Sword modules that don't work with 
Sword.exe. It is common for programs and modules of different names to work

Windows user. :-)

In any case, the Windows users should not see any modules, or anything 
else, that they can not use with Sword.exe.
