Windows is supported.  You should be able to run the networkdirect, tcp, sockets, and udp providers (plus the utility providers over those).  NetworkDirect is for IB/iWarp/RoCE devices (think of it as libibverbs for Windows).

We run smoke tests on windows as part of all pull requests, but not more involved validation.  However, since the same code is used on Linux and windows, there's a good chance it works well.  We also don't create windows packages for libfabric.  The windows build projects are stored in the git repo.
