Describe the issue:

sgctl is a Java-based tool, thus it is bascially platform-independent. Besides the .sh files, we are also distributing it in form of other artifacts which can be directly used with Java. See:

So, you could for example download the file sgctl-1.2.1-shaded.jar.

Aterwards, you can just execute it with Java similar to this:

java -jar sgctl-1.2.1-shaded.jar

(Possibly, you have to write java.exe instead or java or give the whole path to the Java binary)
