The quickest method of hosting a dedicated server on Microsoft Windows is by creating a game shortcut of the {{Path|Unturned.exe}} downloaded by the Steam client when the game was locally installed. However, this method cannot be used with [[modules]] such as RocketMod.

To start, SteamCMD must first be [https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd.zip downloaded for Windows]. Once downloaded, the package must be extracted. When {{Path|steamcmd.exe}} is ran, it will generate new files. So, the executable should be stored in an otherwise empty folder (the initially extracted folder would be suitable for this), and that folder should be stored in an easily accessible area. For this guide, the initially extracted folder named {{Path|steamcmd}} is used, and placed in the {{Path|...\Documents}} directory.

If it is preferred, this can be used in place of the Update script. However, it will always take significantly longer to run, even if there has been no update to the game and no files are damaged. Both scripts are entirely optional, and are only provided to make maintaining the server easier.

=== Creating the server ===
 
 
Creating the server is nearly identical to the "[[#Game shortcut method|Game shortcut method]]" detailed at the top of the page, with the exception of an entirely different directory being used. The instructions provided below will be a briefer version of the instructions provided for the game shortcut method. For more information, refer to the game shortcut method.
 
 
# Still inside the {{Path|steamcmd}} folder, navigate to the game directory. In this guide, it was named {{Path|unturned}}.
 
# Create a shortcut of {{Path|Unturned.exe}}. Open its properties, and append the following line of text to the very end of the target field: <code>-nographics -batchmode +secureserver\Server</code>.
 
# Save the changes made to the target field and run the shortcut. This will generate all of the necessary server files.
 
# When the files are done being generated, use <code>shutdown</code> to close the server.
