I wrote a long reply before that was removed by one of the moderators... I won't write everything again. Just in short: I found a solution that worked! You can restore the post if anyone is interested...
Thanks for your help.
Thanks for reaching out and for being here! I've looked for the message that you've mentioned was removed on our spam quarantine and can't find it, I apologize for the inconvenience.

I also got this problem. It'd help me a lot if you can restore the solution or tell me how to do it.
@brianamarieThanks for restoring my post. Is there a way to change the solution to my restored post? Or could you do it as moderator?
I'm struggling with the same issue.
However, am I the only one who doesn't actually think this is a solution?
Just use a Linux VM instead of Windows shouldn't be an acceptable answer.
@GertjanMonkeyProof I agree - I have notified the course author and they are working on a better solution.
If you follow the instructions as in the tutorial, but use the bash console at https://repl.it/languages/bash it works. You will be prompted for another couple of steps (eg author name/email, credentials for github), but that's fairly self explanatory.
