Running a relay node on windows

over the last week, I’ve been trying to run a relay node on Windows 10 but it always seems to fail at some point.

I’ve got it synced and running but it doesn’t seem to stay connected.
I’m running Linux subsystem running ubuntu inside windows 10, should I be using a VM VirtualBox instead?

I’m also just reading now that Windows can’t run past 1.33 is that still true?
