I have compiled it for Windows and uploaded zipped binaries on
pactester downloads page:
Also to simplify things and as an added bonus to pacparser users, I
have decided to distribute this version of pactester (implemented in C
using pacparser API) along with pacparser from next release. Thanks to
open source that I can do that :)

I am glad that you found pactester useful.

Regarding supporting mms:// protocol, I think it doesn't make much
sense to check for protocol. I have checked in some changes (for both
versions of pactester - C and perl) to drop protocol verification
completely. You can see the diff here if you are interested:
These changes will go in next release. I have not scheduled it yet.
May be some time in first or second week of September. In the meantime
you can use existing pactester with '-h' option. For example something
like following works:
Protocol verification happens only if you don't specify host explicitly.
