As we now (#2631) force "sync" to be present, we should also implement sync for windows. It is a trivial plugin, which only calls FlushFileBuffers:

Otherwise the implementation is basically identical to the sync plugin src/plugins/sync/sync.c

const char * configFile = keyString (parentKey);
if (!strcmp (configFile, "")) return 0; // no underlying config file
int fd = open (configFile, O_RDWR);
if (fd == -1)
ELEKTRA_SET_ERRORF (89, parentKey, "Could not open config file %s because \"%s\"", configFile, strerror (errno));
return -1;
if (fsync (fd) == -1)
ELEKTRA_SET_ERRORF (89, parentKey, "Could not fsync config file %s because \"%s\"", configFile, strerror (errno));
close (fd);
return -1;
close (fd);
return 1; /* success */
