Normally I do not respond to trolls but...

If you want an Asterisk version to run on Windows, go for it.  You are
free to create it yourself.  Most of the folks on this list realize the
Asterisk on Windows is a huge mistake.  If you really believe that this
is such a good idea, go for it and become a bazillionare from your
work.  Then you can come back and say "I told you so".  Until then take
the advise of the many good folks on this list that collectively have
many decades of experience and run asterisk on Linux.
