I don't know, since I don't have a Windows machine. I can report it works on MacOS and Linux.

Also, since we're talking elsewhere about making the IETF more inviting for newcomers, don't forget that a large fraction of the engineering population expects an installable Windows application. (That's something GitHub got right, in fact: GitHub Desktop rocks.)

Correct, and I'm not suggesting that this is a replacement for a web service. It can be a replacement for installing all the required pieces of the toolchain manually, however.
