No. With the exception of libguac, guacamole-server depends on POSIX
features and behavior not present in Windows. It's conceivable that it
could be ported, but probably not worth the effort given that (1) there is
very little demand for a Windows port and (2) those that do need such a
port can already use a VM or Docker.

Keep in mind also that you do not need to install Guacamole on the desktops
you will be connecting to. Guacamole is a gateway, and the Guacamole server
will happily connect to your Windows machines. It only needs to be
installed on one, centralized server to make that happen.

If you truly use only Windows servers and cannot deploy a Linux server to
host Guacamole, I'd recommend using a VM or Docker to give Guacamole the
platform it needs independent of the server OS.
