There is always brute force: you could run windows in a virtual machine 
under VMware, virtualbox, etc.  It wastes some resources, requires an OS 
license and attention to updates, but lets you run anything on the same 
physical hardware without conversions.  If you need it to share an IP 
address you can set up a reverse proxy within a named vhost 
configuration - otherwise it can just look like a separate machine.
