I think you are referring to the Document Viewer Evince.
Yes, it is available for Windows:

  • archive.org has a mirror available for this download at Warwick university's website anorien.csc.warwick.ac.uk/mirrors/download.opensuse.org/… . If any Windows users are having trouble with this download, use 7zip (or a similar file extracting program) to open the downloaded RPM file, and just click through each folder until you get to the msi file. Extract that out of the RPM file, and open it as you would any other installer. Commented Mar 9, 2018 at 16:15
  • @JackFifield Thank you for your information. That link brings a newer version Unfortunately, in Windows 10, it crashes on start. Commented Apr 27, 2018 at 5:55
  • @VladimirS. FWIW, right now the link from this post refers to repo.msys2.org/mingw and although the link is kind of useless on its own (you can't just unpack a package there and run binaries as they has dependencies), but you can install evince with mingw installer.
