I don’t use Windows but here is a youtube tutorial that may help.

Will you use windows as openhab server? There are some other options to test openhab if not.

Yes will use Windows as openhab server. I have several machines as spares.

Well then definitely worth figuring windows out. I was thinking you could run out ofdocker or virtual box.
