If you can use windows 8.1 Pro 64bit. You can use hyper-v and run a
virtual linux machine (Or the Free Hyper-V Server 2012 R2), VM Ware also
works well. Load asterisk on that and you are set. This is how we run it at
a few very small customers as well as my development machines and it works
great. Best linux builds for Hyper-V we currently have found to be Ubuntu
As both a windows and linux guy I have to concur that loading Asterisk on
windows directly is like putting a V8 on a moped. You may get there, but it
won't be pretty; It's a lot of work, and it would be hell to maintain. (We
do not trust it for production applications)
In all seriousness I have a Asterisk build running on windows and it is
stable but it is a lot of work to get it there and since it is not
maintained by the community it is a full task to keep it up to date. We use
it for in process testing of code that we develop with MS visual studio. If
not for that I would not bother with Asterisk on Windows there would be no
value in it. Especially since the current version of Asterisk now works so
well in virtual environments.
