[Herb Sevush] "I know there are freeware solutions to encode ProRes in Widows, but I'm not interested in a workaround...."

There are multiple well-supported professional applications from people like Telestream and Harmonic Rhozet that work directly inside Premiere. ProRes is an export option like any other. No hacks, no freeware, no workarounds.

Not to say that you don't need to pay attention in setup, but in fact Telestream Episode Engine, Vantage, and FlipFactory will all get 'er done - professional, fully supported, painless and fast.

I'm emphasizing fast, because you'll need to trade off price vs. speed...but you really need to see to believe. It's one of the places where faster processing on Windows really pays off...."pay" being relative of course.

Not that that changes anything else, including general comfort level, your budget, etc. but all else being equal, ProRes shouldn't be a go-no go question for platform because you WISELY don't want to trust a key workflow component to freeware.
