You could write a python script that would only call the
aforementioned yum command, and then wrap that (and all the needed
Python modules) in a .exe that you can then run on Windows.


And please, this is definitely not a topic for the ambassadors
mailing-list. It seems it is increasingly becoming the default
mailing-list for people who don't know where to write, and it is
getting annoying.

The Fedora users list would be more suitable to ask where to ask when
you're in doubt, rather than a forum that is specialized in a
completely unrelated matter.
