I am trying to use the health_check module on Windows nginx/1..7.6 

        location / {
            proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
            proxy_pass       http://backend;

and I'm getting the following error in the log file

unknown directive "health_check"

Is this module not included in the Windows build?
