Install on windows


Can we install privacyIDEA on windows? I tried to install on windows 10 but it gave following errors:

copying and adjusting pi-manage -> build\scripts-3.8
running install_lib
running install_data

Welcome to the privacyIDEA community. You should not consider installing on windows. privacyIDEA is a complex system with a lot of functionalities which will not work out on such an operating system!

Choose the installation on Ubuntu 20.04 or 18.04, which has the best polished packages.

Why would you install a SERVER SYSTEM on a CLIENT operating system anyways?
(Do not answer, this is a rhetorical question!)
