Under windows, you can use everything and his command line (es) instead of
locate. http://www.voidtools.com/download.php

Maybe you use a locate version of cygwin, otherwise the locate
version of gnuwin32 doesn't have a updatedb command...
Maybe that is fixed now, don't know.

Anyway everything under windows work fine and very fast, it's what i use
by default in anything-locate (find it in anything-config.el).

A+ Thierry
