    Debabrata ,
    The Berkeley UPC compiler is mainly written for POSIX-like environments, 
    which does not include native Windows XP.
    However, Cygwin is a POSIX-like environment for Windows that is 
    sufficient to allow Berkeley UPC (and many other applications written 
    for Linux or other Unix) to run.
    Cygwin is a substantial infrastructure and that accounts for the bulk of 
    the 1.2GB download.
    If you have already installed Cygwin on your machine then you could 
    download just the source code for Berkeley UPC (under 7MB) and build 
    from that.
