Why do I get an error when trying to build a standalone ROS2 node on Windows 7?

I am trying to generate a standalone ROS2 node on a Windows 7 computer but when I try to build it it comes up with an error:
MATLAB System block <path to Source Block> error occurred when invoking 'setupImpl' method of 'ros.slros2.internal.block.Subscriber'.
Caused by:
Unable to launch Simple server: Unable to launch
because: Unable to launch Simple server: Unable to launch server: initialization failed
I have used a similar model for ROS1 and I am able to build and run the resulting code within a ROS1 environment.

Windows 10 is the only Windows based compatible platform as you can see in the following web page:
As this is a ROS2 requirement, the only option is to upgrade your operating system to a more recent one. You can also consider using a Linux / Mac based platform or a virtual machine.
