The short answer is that probably very few if any such tools exists. Metagenomics assembly is a very complex problem and as such it is in quite early stages of research and development.

The only one solution I know (as you pointed before, almost all developments are in Linux and other *nix systems for good reasons) is the CLCbio that supports Windows OS and isn't cheap -> http://www.clcbio.com/index.php?id=930

your welcome. You can also try the "cloud" systems like MG-rast to avoid installations -> http://metagenomics.anl.gov/

MG-RAST is only an analysis tool. No metagenomic assembly there. MG-RAST will accept assembled data.
