Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up Composer on Windows, part of Learning Laravel 4 (2014).
While you can install Composer…completely from the command line on Windows,…it's much simpler to just use the provided installer.…So let's go get it.…I'll go to Composer.org…and then click on getting started.…Once you're on the getting started page,…click on installation - Windows,…and then download the Composer setup .exe file.…We'll save it,…and once it's saved,…I'll open that folder,…and double click the download.…
Once the installer window opens,…I'll click next,…And I'm just going to accept the default…of not installing shell menus.…That's up to you of course,…if you'd like to install them.…Now we need to locate PHP.exe.…I'm using a current version of WampServer.…So I'm going to browse to my C drive.…Go down to Wamp,…into the bin directory,…into PHP,…into the current version of PHP that I'm running,…which happens to be 5.5.12,…your version may be different.…
If you're not running a version as recent as this one,…I recommend that you upgrade…and you'll avoid a particular little gotcha…with WampServer and the installer.…
