You can download a dedicated Server application for V Rising from Steam. It is freely available to anyone so you can download it without much trouble. Head to the Tool section of your Steam library and you can download it by simply clicking over it.

Currently, you will only find the Windows version of the dedicated server.  In case you are using the SteamCMD for downloading the dedicated server, use the 1829350 Steam AppID and the remaining process is explained below.

@echo off

start “” steamcmd.exe +login USER PASS
