Please do read the FAQ Q7.8.

Once you have followed that, it should install from the sources (it does for me). However, to make it work you need other things which are non-trivial to get working on Windows: see

         http://www.stat.uiowa.edu/~luke/R/cluster/cluster.html

for the lower-level interfaces. I think snow over PVM has been reported to work under Windows, but I don't know about the others.

There is no binary version of the package, as testing that would be tedious at best.
