mininet  is great to start with OpenFlow (and even for advanced tests),
another option is to use multiple linux VMs inside your windows host (you will need some extra RAM), tinycore linux would be enough for VMs acting as hosts, and virtualbox has a lot of networking options otherwise I would recommend using linux in all physical hosts.

Thanks Aaron, I am pretty new to OpenFlow, and I am trying to create an OpenFlow network in my lab which consists of few PC's with windows running as host and Linux as virtual machine....
I want to know if each OpenVswitch and the controller can be installed on different Linux virtual machines and make them communicate to create a small OpenFlow network.
Looking forward for your suggestions and inputs...Thank you.

Shouldn't matter if your run linux on top of windows or linux on top of linux. (Unless you want the underlying host to run the OpenFlow switch to handle the vm's traffic. For that you would need the underlying host to be linux, as far as I know none of the openflow switch implementations support running on windows).
This would probably be a good link to start out with:

would like to know if it is possible to create an OpenFlow network
using Linux virtual machines (running on Windows). or Do we need to have
PC's running linux exclusively ?
I am using the following link (http://yuba.stanford.edu/foswiki/bin/view/OpenFlow/Deployment/HOWTO/LabSetup#OpenFlow_Switches) to create an OpenFlow network using multiple switches Is this the right link ?
