Apologies, I thought you meant run as in currently hosted on windows. You're correctEvery version of TFS and OTServ can be compiled for Windows. Compiled binaries can be found on GitHub and here on OTLand. There are .exes on the internet for any conceivable version of OTServ, Evolutions, DevLand, YurOTS, what have you. Actually I don't even know a distro that doesn't run on Windows. What is so controversial about that statement?
You need a database running on your system. TFS only runs with a database. You need to install and configure MySQL. With XML servers you don't need a database, because all the data is stored in XML files (this has major drawbacks but that's an another discussion). Pretty much what @rlx said.
The problem is, you need to know your shit if you want 200 players on there. We're telling you to use an old XML server to learn on because they're more straight forward. You can make a prototype, see how it all works, and then move to a more modern server and begin creating the "real" server.
