To install CouchDB on your Windows computer, download it from couchdb.apache.org. Click the download link. I am selecting the version that works with Erlang R15B. Clicking on the download link takes you to a mirror selection page. I'm going to select the default mirror. When the download is complete, double-click to start the installation.
First, accept the license. I'm going to leave this path as the default. You can also create a Start Menu folder. If you don't want CouchDB to start up whenever you start Windows, uncheck these boxes, otherwise leave them checked. Finally, click the Install button. Uncheck the View README.txt box and then click Finish. CouchDB is now installed on your Windows computer. Let's fire up the Futon interface.
Click the Start button and go to All Programs, then find Apache CouchDB. Click the Futon link. Now let's have a look at the folder to use when using the database dumps from the exercise files. Open up Explorer, and then go to C: > Program Files (x86) > Apache Software Foundation > CouchDB, var > lib > couchdb. This is the folder to use to copy in database dumps from the exercise files.
Now you have everything you need to use CouchDB on your Windows computer.
