I am curious if the Pulumi install on Windows utilizes executables and installs executables? I have an extremely restrictive work environment which limits me to a Windows system on which I cannot run any executables I install on the system. I do have Python and can run Python scripts, as well as JS and possibly Java. Based on my install of Pulumi on my Linux system, I see that is executables.

Yes we do need to install and run executables. Each language host, and cloud provider is a separate executable and process that are either installed side-by-side with the pulumi.exe (for example pulumi-language-nodejs.exe), or installed into the %PULUMI_HOME/.plugins directory (e.g. pulumi-resource-aws.exe)
