I'm the maintainer of libvips, it should work. What command did you
run and what error message did you get?

It's a command-line program, so you need to add the libvips bin area
to your path and enter commands like:

    vips.exe dzsave my-slide.svs my-pyramid

in a terminal window to generate a deepzoom pyramid from your slide data.

If you want a graphical interface, nip2 (the libvips GUI) can open SVS
slides, thanks to Benjamin's openslide library. You can download a
Windows binary here:

There are other GUIs available, though I don't have a list handy.
