We do not directly support Windows builds.

Building on Windows is a tedious work. Since there is no packaging, you
likely have to first build all the dependencies (and dependencies of
dependencies, ...).

Jernej Simončič offers Windows builds of Wget on

But I can't say if these builds have IRI support or not, give it a try.

Back when I had a Windows VM, I installed CygWin that comes with all
packages prebuild. It offers a *nix layer with all those fancy *nix
tools (bash, gcc, ssh, ...). I loved it.

With Best Regards, Tim
