    Have you downloaded and installed the iCloud control panel for windows? It should be available in the software update application if not the Apple website. You need to sign in in the control panel and turn on photo stream from there as well.

    question... what do you do with multiple users and 1 pc? Me and the wife both have an iphone and ipad with different itunes/icloud accounts. It appears you have to log out of the pc icloud in order for the other one to be able to download. I see there point for doing it, but in our case, we would just want our photos going to one spot without having to constantly login and logout. Any suggestions?
