I need to check about that, I don't have really much time about that.
I didn't really checked about Win32 paths inside the preferences...
But they should be some somewhere, and if so, some IFDEF should do the trick.
If someone really know that part, please commit the simple_prefs part.

I think the preferences.cpp part is good.
