Go ahead and get 2.14.5 for now, if you're still running 2.14.x on Windows.

Bugzilla was never intended to run on Windows, and although we do intend to
make it able to run on Windows in the near future, it has always in the
past required lots of hacking to run on Windows, so the work required to
install 2.16.2 won't be much worse than it was to install 2.12 or 2.14 when
they first put it in.  That's one of the dangers of installing software on
a platform it's not supported on.

Hopefully it'll be much less work for them to install 2.18 (or one of the
2.17's in the near future).  It would make me very happy if we could have a
2.17.4 that ran out of the box on Windows.  The one bug that makes 2.16
worse than 2.14 for the amount of hacking required is the mail processing
(http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84876).  Hopefully there won't
be any more security bugs, but just to be safe, we need to make that bug a
priority in the short term so Windows users have somewhere to go.
