[documentation] Windows runner

Documentation for the Windows runner seriously needs re-writing… is giving Linux commands and a Linux path for installing on the Windows platform! ie. curl, sudo, tar, cat. :open_mouth: Also folder creation mentioned at log path (step 3) really should have been at the start, since not log related, and needed for the configuration file mentioned at step 2. Step 2 mentions in BASH, which is not relevant for Windows. Don’t mean to be negative, just making sure everything needing correction is mentioned. Step 4 is the only one to get the gold star! :wink:

Worth mentioning is that the Windows runner should be to packaged in a zip file if practical / possible, thus removing the need it install 7zip, WinRAR, etc. just to unpack this file if the user doesn’t already have a suitable archive program installed, since it’s not natively supported by the OS.

It would be great if someone could provide the correct powershell commands for section 1, which would largely solve the issues with the documentation.

Hm… I tried to reply to this last week, but it seems I can’t give the necessary code lines… both Chrome and Firefox are getting stuck on saving the post… bad Discourse! https://pastebin.com/raw/QTP9xEpY
