I guess that you are referring to is using dvi for documentation
files on Windows instead of PDF? Yes this is possible, in fact it
is the default for the linux versions and was also for the previous
Windows version. The decision to use PDF for the most recent Windows
version was based on the presumption that most windows users do not
have MikTex (or equivalent LaTeX package) installed.

Earlier on this page it says:

So far only one person has made any comment about this. They said
that PDF was a good idea. Perhaps other people would like to
"vote" for returning to use of dvi on Windows?
