Short answer: No.

The Windows code is not open source and Nginx cannot link modules dynamically, as such you're limited to the binaries offered on and the modules they include.

On a related note, Nginx on Windows is really sub-optimal and not very fast, you do not want to run it for anything other than development environment.

tks for the answer Martin! – chesterman Aug 19 '11 at 0:04
Does this answer still hold in 2016? – Don Omondi May 13 at 5:12
@DonOmondi Nope. It should be possible now as it's possible to build windows version from source and nginx also supports dynamically linked modules. It has not had any performance improvements, though. – Martin Fjordvald May 16 at 10:29
