Windoz is not officially supported for cs-cart.  Strongly suggest using Linux.  Way too much overhead in most Windoz server environments.

Please choose a linux distro as I previously had a Windows server as well which caused caching problems and such. Furthermore I'd also like to point out that linux is more stable and is more secure. The only downside I could think of is that you do not have a UI as good as windows has, but that shouldn't be a big difference if we take a look at the performance gain you get from using linux.

For developmet we have some windows servers,but for production/live or demo site is highly recommended linux over windows.

You could opt for a control panel or admin helper as tbirnseth (ez-ms) calls them. I have overall decent to excellent experience with a variety of them but currently happy with WHM Cpanel on a CentOS 7 virtual box.

But you are not a real great fan of them if I am not mistaken or least a few contributors on this community forum are not.

We have numerous clients running CS-Cart just fine under Windows .. but it does come at the expense of somewhat higher overhead and CPU.

 

These are WIMP configs. (Windows, IIS, MySQL, PHP)

What do you do for caching ? I mean back in the day when I ran IIS it was for either a Adobe Coldfusion application server or the opensource Railo.

CS-Cart is compatible with almost every server that supports PHP and MySQL but CS-Cart team recommend Apache or Nginx.
