I believe we ship the Perl interface on Windows, but I've never used it.
Writing this in C wouldn't be that terrible either. All you'd need to do
is catch the received-im-msg signal and then write out a file with the
contents. That said, if you're going to learn a language from scratch to
do this, try Perl first. ;)

DBus doesn't exist on Windows, so in your case, you don't need to worry
about it.
