Installing latest version 5.1.1 of Logstash on windows

I am trying to install the latest version of Logstash ie 5.1.1 on windows (Windows 7 Professional).

I unziped the logstash installtion file in the path : C:\Program Files\logstash-5.1.1. Now when i try to test the logstash installation with this command:
logstash -e 'input { stdin { } } output { stdout {} }'

Following error is shown when this command in run:

Following is mentioned on their site in the Installation guide section:
Do not install Logstash into a directory path that contains colon ( : ) characters

Is this the reason i am getting this error? If yes, it seems to me that there is no way to avoid directory path with a colon on a windows environment. How do i get around this problem ?
If no, what might be the reason and how do i fix it?

We do not support Windows 7 sorry.
