Hi James.  There's not really a preferred version, as having
developers use different versions can actually help.  Most of us use
Windos 7 by now, but Windows XP SP2 and later is fine.  Older versions
can help catch compatability problems.

Of course it is even better to test on both (I keep Windows 7 and
Windows XP VMs around for testing).

What tools do we use to compile nmap under windows?  I have an older
version of visual studio on the XP machine.

We have details and instructions here:


What are the best command line options to exercise 1000 ports on a
single machine?

I guess it depends what your goals are for the scan.  A plain "nmap
<target>" command will scan 1,000 ports on the target machine.  But
you can also add options like -A to make the scan more intense.
