    A.3 Installing on Windows

    Before we get into how to install Redis on Windows, I’d like to point out that running
    Redis on Windows isn’t recommended, for a variety of reasons. In this section we’ll
    cover these points:

    • Reasons why you shouldn’t be running Redis on Windows.
    • How to download, install, and run a precompiled Windows binary.
    • How to download and install Python for Windows.
    • How to install the Redis client library.

    Our first step is to discuss why you shouldn’t be running Redis on Windows.
