Yes kafka client can be used as a consumer on windows. If your kafka is kerberized then you may face issues related to kerberos if you have long running consumers/producers.

Consumer/producer code runs fine until TGT obtained is valid. Once it gets expired you it fails to consume/produce messages. This happens if kinit is not installed and command path is not configured.
