I just wrote a Wiki page detailing how to install Icecast as service 
using NSSM, you can
find it here http://wiki.xiph.org/Icecast_Server/Setup_Windows_Service

Well it is not that we ignore Windows, but most servers are running 
Linux and we have to choose
some priorities, given that we never got much feedback from windows

developers, a Windows Service was not one of the top priorities.
But we will investigate re-adding this functionality.
