There are pre-packaged binaries available from the main [[https://couchdb.apache.org/#download|Apache CouchDB]] site for your convenience. This will always be the latest feature release of CouchDB.

The CouchDB project includes GNU autotools based scripts to build from source, which creates a self-extracting install package for Windows. The official release artefact is the [[http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/couchdb/source|signed tar.gz archive]], and additionally, a signed binary is available also on the [[http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/couchdb/binary/win/|Apache Mirrors]] for convenience.

Instructions on building from source are [[https://github.com/apache/couchdb/|available]], as well as annotations for [[Building_from_source_on_Windows|older releases]].

== Supported / Tested Platforms ==

This installer has been tested on 64 and 32 bit versions of:
 * Windows Server 2008 both RTM and R2
 * Windows 7 and 8

It is likely to work on most Windows versions released this century, that are supported by the underlying Erlang/OTP runtime.

== Dependencies ==

None - the installer includes erlang, openssl, ICU, spidermonkey and everything else you need including Microsoft Visual C++ runtimes.

== Current Versions ==

The latest release of CouchDB is always available from the [[https://couchdb.apache.org/#download|offical CouchDB]] site. There are normally 2 versions of the installer, an R14B04 stable Erlang release, and a newer R15 or R16B based release with a newer Erlang/OTP runtime. There is no functional difference between these versions, however you may wish to integrate CouchDB with other Erlang modules that are not yet compatible with the latest OTP release.

 * '''couchdb-1.3.0''' - With Erlang/OTP R14B04 or R15B, and JS 1.8.5 [[http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/couchdb/binary/win/1.3.0/|apache mirrors]] site.

 * '''couchdb-1.2.2''' - With Erlang/OTP R14B04 or R15B, and JS 1.8.5 [[http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/couchdb/binary/win/1.2.2/|apache mirrors]].

Use Firefox to run the CouchDB tests from Futon, to verify that your installation is successful, by pointing your web browser to
[[]] and run "verify install".
