Attempting to start nginx in Windows Nano Server fails using

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]

C:\>echo %errorlevel%

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 are 32-bit ones. If you need 64-bit windows binary, you may try compiling it yourself as outlined at, though likely there will be problems at least with compiling libraries.
