The packaged distributions of OpenFOAM for Ubuntu 14.04LTS can now be installed directly on Microsoft Windows 10 using Bash on Ubuntu on Windows.

See OpenFOAM for Windows 10 for installation details.

Bash on Ubuntu on Windows provides a full compatibility layer for running Linux applications on Windows through the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), which performs real-time translation of Linux system calls into Windows OS system calls. The system can support graphical Linux applications, such as the version of ParaView that includes the OpenFOAM reader module, with additional X server software. Running OpenFOAM applications in parallel using WSL is reported to work effectively.

You should edit files etc through the linux subsystem, not via the windows OS:
