Why don't you use the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)?

Please read the manual and use the search function ( Problem installing HTSeq on Windows 10 ):

At the moment, HTSeq supports Linux and OSX but not Windows operating systems, because one of the key dependencies, Pysam, lacks automatic support and none of the HTSeq authors have access to such a machine. However, it might work with some work, if you need support for this open an issue on our Github page.

You need to use python3 on windows, os.symlink() only works on OSX and Linux with python 2. You'll be better off with featureCounts though, which is both faster and more likely to run on windows.

I used featureCounts but don't gave me satisfaction. I will try with python3. But in documentation and on official HTSeq site, autors said that it works on windows with Python 2.7.

What does that mean?
