@tiatmehta @CoderOfBlaviken @Quince @andy93 @Kushal_Gautam - Has anyone installed discourse in Windows machine? I do not find any documentation for it in the discussion too.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions and would like to help.

Thanks in advance.

@varthini I did it in a Mac, but I believe the instructions will work for Windows as well.

if you go to the page about discourse installation problems @Sai_Likhith_K has a google doc with the process of downloading discourse on windows you have to use a virtual machine if you are installing on windows

Oh thank you. Let me try it and get back if there are any issues.

Thank you @tiatmehta

I used an Ubuntu virtual machine in VirtualBox, you can try that.

Thank you guys, I created an ubuntu VM using hyper-v and then installed discourse on that VM.
Appreciate all your replies.
