There are some problems with the 1.0.2 IDE:

* the default target is set to go32v2, you have to change it to win32 (in 
the Compile menu)
* if you open a file in another directory than the current one, you get 
an error when trying to compile it. You can fix this by using the "Change 
directory..." command in the File menu to change the current directory to 
the same one as where the file you want to compile resides.

These problems are already fixed in the current development version and 
as such will be resolved in the next release.
