2.1. Windows#

This section describes how to install Groonga on Windows. You can install Groonga by extracting a zip package.

We distribute both 32-bit and 64-bit packages but we strongly recommend a 64-bit package for server. You should use a 32-bit package just only for tests or development. You will encounter an out of memory error with a 32-bit package even if you just process medium size data.

2.1.1. zip#

For 32-bit environment, download x86 zip archive from packages.groonga.org:

If we don’t need Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library, we download from the following URL:

Then extract it.

For 64-bit environment, download x64 zip archive from packages.groonga.org:

If we don’t need Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library, we download from the following URL:

Then extract it.

You can find groonga executable file in bin folder.

2.1.2. Build from source#

First, you need to install required tools for building Groonga on Windows. Here are required tools:

Download zipped source from packages.groonga.org:

Then extract it.

Move to the Groonga’s source folder:

> cd c:\Users\%USERNAME%\Downloads\groonga-12.0.7

Configure by cmake. The following commnad line is for 64-bit version. To build 32-bit version, use -G "Visual Studio 12 2013" parameter instead:

groonga-12.0.7> cmake . -G "Visual Studio 12 2013 Win64" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:\Groonga

Build:

groonga-12.0.7> cmake --build . --config Release

Install:

groonga-12.0.7> cmake --build . --config Release --target Install

After the above steps, groonga executable file is found at c:\Groonga\bin\groonga.exe.
