Windsor came close to picking up their first points under Mick Woodham going down 3-2 away at Cove.
A raft of changes once again greeted Windsor fans as Woodham looks to steady the ship following the recent managerial changes with a number of new signings.
Windsor's good start was down to a couple of players that decided to stay on at Stag Meadow with George Gould heading Joes Smith's header off the line moments before Windsor took the lead.
Ben Harris was felled on the edge of the area earning a free kick which he duely dispatched into the top corner leaving Stuart Harris with no chance of saving it.
However, the lead didn't last for long and when Windsor failed to get the ball clear Jake Baxter was on hand to put the ball into the net.
Harris could have restored Windsor's lead minutes later when he dispossessed Nathan Nelson on the edge of the area before seeing his effort deflected over the bar.
A poor 2 minute spell basically wiped out all of Windsor's hard work when first Ben Dillon made the most of some poor marking to collect a long throw and slot beyond Mark Banfry.
Dillon then hit a second in as many minutes when he was put through by Aaron Parfitt.
Windsor had a much better second half and again Harris came agonisingly close when he hit Steven Eyango-Bwanga's cross over the bar.
They were more fortunate minutes later when Cove failed to clear a free kick and eventually the ball fell for Tom Mudge to knock in his first club goal.
Midway through the half Windsor were denied what seemed to be a stonewall penalty when Harris was up-ended in the area only for the referee to wave away the protests and then book Harris for his reaction.
