There should be no particular problem to install all those tools on a
Windows machine, but in general, there's a need to install a ported
Bash as well.

There should be no problem running these commands, assuming (I cannot
check that where I'm typing this) that they don't use something that
Windows disallows, like file names with forbidden character.
