The "WebKit .NET" project is completely independent from WebKit, it has
no relation with the WebKit project.

As far as I know, WebKit .NET has been discontinued.

To use WebKit on Windows, you can look into the WinCairo project

An other modern web engine on Windows is the blink engine (a fork of
WebKit used by google Chrome): http://www.chromium.org/blink.
