Can Magento ecommerce platform run on Windows?

Yes. Assuming that you have downloaded and installed XAMPP Web Server environment on your Windows system then Windows IIS web server is fully capable of running Magento despite others only recommending to use Linux. If you haven’t installed XAMPP then, download and install it from https://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/)

Although there are some server differences between Linux and Windows, Magento has been fully designed to realise these and adjust accordingly.

There are certain requirements for Magento:

For Magento 2.1

Apache Version 2.2 or 2.4
