As far as I know, that's not possible. Unless you do some Hackintosh (a PC with Mac OS installed), or you run a VM with Mac OS.

Hacintosh is not a Windows environment. It is running OS X on non-Apple hardware, which makes it still an Apple software environment. You cannot use Xcode anywhere outside of OS X.

I'm not sure who said Hackintosh is a Windows environment. I mentioned it as a way to have a regular PC hardware running Mac OS X as it's main OS.
The other option I gave was having a VM (on Linux or Windows, doesn't matter) with Mac OS X installed.

The author asked for a method of running Xcode in a Windows environment, which I took to mean a Window operating system.

Running Mac OS X in virtual machine and on any non-Apple hardware is against Apple's EULA and should not be suggested here.

That's why I said that as far as I know, it's not possible to use Xcode in Windows.
Regarding Apple's EULA, I've never read it, but if you did and it's not allowed, then by all means it shouldn't be used.

I found this which seems to be a legal way to do something similar, but I can't confirm it's really legal/illegal, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

You cannot use that dmg file on windows.
Actually you need to have mac-OS i.e. the mac operating system with you or else you can use VM-Ware to install virtual OS.
It will be to certain extent slow but it is good to have it any time rather than having nothing.
Please review the following links it will help to install mac os.
