Description

Attempting to start nginx in Windows Nano Server fails using https://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.13.0.zip

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]

C:\>nginx\nginx.exe

C:\>echo %errorlevel%
-1073741515

Hypothesis: Nano Server only runs 64-bit executables and the nginx Windows build is not a 64-bit executable.

Yes, precompiled nginx windows binaries as provided at http://nginx.org/en/download.html are 32-bit ones. If you need 64-bit windows binary, you may try compiling it yourself as outlined at http://nginx.org/en/docs/howto_build_on_win32.html, though likely there will be problems at least with compiling libraries.
