Hello @Ktalaat55. QIIME 2 is not distributed for Windows because many of our dependencies are not developed for Windows.

We support MacOS and Ubuntu Linux. If you would like to use QIIME 2 on Windows, you can use the Windows Subsystem for Linux or WSL to install Linux within Windows then install QIIME 2 in that Linux install following the instructions here.
