I'm having trouble understanding the issue here.

Then, you could probably do the following:
- install ApacheDS (the Directory Server not the Studio) using specific windows installer
- use Apache Directory Studio to :
    - Edit the configuration using the ApacheDS Configuration plugin
    - Edit the schema of the server using the Schema Editor plugin (which can be exported
for ApacheDS in LDIF format)
    - Edit the data of your ApacheDS instance with the LDAP Browser plugin (browse/add entries,
import LDIF files, etc.)

The ApacheDS instance should be easy to launch either:
- from command line with our bat script
- from the service utility in Windows.
