All current 32-bit versions of Nginx for Windows are built with Cygwin on Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit) and work on 32-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000, Windows 7, and other similar versions.
Similarly, all current 64-bit versions of Nginx for Windows are built with Cygwin on Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) and work on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000, Windows 7, and other similar versions.
Other versions of Windows may be compatible, but were not tested.

Nginx for Windows should not be used for production, but can be used for development purposes.
