Help needed with PHPUnit & l18n TextCollector [SOLVED]

I'm trying to use the l18n textcollector and localize my templates, but when I open dev/tasks/i18nTextCollectorTask, I get no response at all. I read that text collector requires PHPUnit, so I tried installing that, but opening dev/tests gives me an error, "Please install PHPUnit using pear". I tried installing PHPUnit using composer, but since I'm new to both of them, I'm having some trouble with it (it doesn't really help that installation instruction link in is broken).

I think I managed to install dev dependencies using composer with composer update --dev (at least there's bunch of phpunit packages in vendor directory), but I'm pretty much stuck. Any ideas how to proceed?

I have composer installed globally using the Windows installer.

So yeah, I guess there's no way to install PHPunit using composer in Windows so that it works. Installed with PEAR globally and works like a charm.

Only text collector still doesn't work. dev/tasks/i18nTextCollectorTask just throws a "connection aborted".

I have the same problem with 3.0.5, connection aborted.
