Salt has full support for running the Salt Minion on Windows.

There are no plans for the foreseeable future to develop a Salt Master on Windows. For now you must run your Salt Master on a supported operating system to control your Salt Minions on Windows.

Many of the standard Salt modules have been ported to work on Windows and many of the Salt States currently work on Windows, as well.

Salt Minion Windows installers can be found here. The output of md5sum <salt minion exe> should match the contents of the corresponding md5 file.

SILENT INSTALLER OPTION

The installer can be run silently by providing the /S option at the command line. The options /masterand /minion-name allow for configuring the master hostname and minion name, respectively. Here’s an example of using the silent installer:
