Configuring .well-known redirect on Apache running on Windows

I am new to community. I have a windows box with Apache 24 installed in c:\Apache24 folder.
I need to validate a file from SSL provider on the Apache24 host. I am on windows so I can't create .well-known folder with the "." (dot) in the front of well-known folder name.

There are few articles showing how to address this using alias, virtual host, etc...

Can someone help me address this. It looks like I may have to add virtual host section to C:\Apache24\conf\httpd-vhosts.conf file. I need help in what exactly would be included.

Thank you

I have not heard this issue on Windows before where the ACME client automatically creates the \.well-known\ directory. Do you require to make it yourself? Or can you just let your ACME client of choice do it for you?

Yeah, what ACME client are you using? It should be making whatever folders are needed itself.

That said, I can create folders beginning with a dot on my computer in both Windows Explorer and through mkdir in the Command Prompt, although I remember it being tricky in prior Windows versions and needing to use a Command Prompt for it. So I think you need to be clearer on what exactly you're trying and why.
