Unfortunately, due to the lack of developer resources and interest, the last version of MPICH which was supported on Windows was 1.4.1p. You can find that version on the downloads page:


Alternatively, Microsoft maintains a derivative of MPICH which should provide the features you need. You also find a link to that on the downloads page above.
