Here's the problem - autogen.sh can't be used in windows - it won't
work. You have to create your own .pro file for the plugin. Have a
look at other plugins how can it be done. Or as you ask in other mail,
you can even take a working plugin, rename it and change the code.

That's because it isn't compiled. It must be added to Qmake build
system if you want to build it on windows.
