Hello there!
I think that many Windows users dropping ENIGMA because of hard installation. And yep - it's true.
I got ~2 weeks to understand how it should work, and made installation script to make this easy.
Usage:
1. Install MSYS2 and do pacman -Syu as the ENIGMA Wiki says.
2. Unpack this script to your msys folder.
3. Install:
   a) for 32-bit machines: via mingw32 folder;
   b) for 64-bit machines: via mingw64 (for 64-bit compilation) and via mingw32(for 32-bit compilation)
4. Enjoy!
NOTE: All useful .bat files for install and launch located in YOUR MSYS FOLDER\ENIGMA\scripts\windows
NOTE #2: If you don't trust .EXE files (which is compressed 7z archive), you can unpack it via 7-zip like normal archive

Interesting... an installer could make this process easier, sure. Have you tried this on multiple machines? My experience suggests that Windows machines all vary in subtle ways that make automating the msys installation (and pointing into it with ENIGMA) is quite difficult. If this approach works for other people, it would be good to link this from the wiki.

Another question: are you installing Git along with ENIGMA, or is this just one arbitrarily-selected version of the repository? Those tend to get stale quickly.

It works on 32-bit (tested on VM) and 64-bit (tested on real hardware)! :D
Git is installed already (from msys)

All sys requirements are going from MSYS.
MSYS 2 requirements are Windows 7 SP1
(but if you can magically run it on older versions, script should work too)
