Eliot Moss recommends a VM and that's a good option.

Another option is to use Cygwin to host a cross compiler. I  have used
Cygwin to build and install cross compilers that ran on Cygwin and
built code for my Raspberry Pi 2. There are many tutorials on building
and creating cross compilers and I won't try to equal them. But this
is a versatile method. If the target Linux was one that runs on a
different processor and a virtual machine would be inefficient or lack
the resources to carry out the build, then running a cross compiler on
your Windows machine, under Cygwin or otherwise, might be an option to
