Another way is to use rosserial <http://wiki.ros.org/rosserial>. We've
found rosserial_server quite performant, and it's straightforward to copy a
few headers from the Ubuntu box to the Windows one and then integrate them
with the Windows-only stuff (especially SDKs like Kinect 2 and Myo).

There isn't an official rosserial-for-Windows port, but we may try to
release something at some point, especially if there's interest.

Note also that this may be a question better suited to the answers site:
