my windows already had a channel around them so I would say yes to the first part and I put my lath up with a roofing nailer and roofing nails it was a lot faster then trying to nail it by hand

did your windows have a little lip around the outer edge of the frame too? Ive been wondering what its for. Got these windows at hd supply so the info attached is pretty minimal.
