Hello Thomas

I have not installed it on a Windows server and do not know if
anyone has done this. As far as I know, all the software on 
which it depends is available on Windows. If your school has an
Apple Mac, you could consider running the server on that. It
does not need Mac OS X Server, desktop Mac OS X is fine.

Your server administrator should be able to advise you on 
possible Windows issues -- check the Wikibook server software 
requirements at

Note that one program needs to be compiled, for which you need 
a C++ compiler.

If you decide to attempt a Windows server installation, it would
be useful for others if you could document your experiences.
I have no Windows knowledge, so am unable to offer any advice.
