MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Installing MySQL Shell on Microsoft Windows

19.3.1.1 Installing MySQL Shell on Microsoft Windows

Important

The Community version of MySQL Shell requires the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013 (available at the Microsoft Download Center) to work; make sure that is installed on your Windows system before installing MySQL Shell.

Note

MySQL Shell is currently not supplied with an MSI Installer. See Installing MySQL Shell Binaries for the manual install procedure.

To install MySQL Shell on Microsoft Windows using the MSI Installer, do the following:

  1. Download the Windows (x86, 64-bit), MSI Installer package from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/shell/.

  2. When prompted, click Run.

  3. Follow the steps in the Setup Wizard.

  1. Unzip the content of the Zip file to the MySQL products directory, for example C:\Program Files\MySQL\.
