AFAIK, there's just the GDB manual that comes with WinAVR.

You would have to use SimulAVR (see link in WinAVR README). However, 
SimulAVR cannot currently be built for the Windows platform. :-/ It's

1. Insight. But it's an *integrated* front-end. Insight is built as 
GDB but contains other code to link to Tcl/Tk libs to provide a front-

2. DDD. <http://www.gnu.org/software/ddd/> but AFAIK they provide
