I want to explore Streamsets Transformer but because of certain limitation I am not able to install Ubuntu or other Linux based OS. Is there a way to use Streamsets Transformer on Windows rather than Linux Systems

You can try running under Windows Subsystem for Linux. I have used WSL to get Data Collector running in Windows. But I haven't tried Transformer. Post here if you get it running. (See also this link for steps on running Data Collector under Windows)

If you are unable to install WSL then you probably can't install software like vmware or virtualbox. So that wouldn't work for you either. In that case you are probably stuck. Transformer does require a Linux system. It cannot run directly under Windows.
