A.3.2 Installing Redis on Windows

You can download a moderately out-of-date precompiled version of Redis for 32-bit
and 64-bit Windows thanks to Dusan Majkic from his GitHub page: https://github.com/dmajkic/redis/downloads. Go ahead and do that now.

After you download Redis, you’ll need to extract the executables from the zip file.
As long as you’re using a version of Windows more recent than Windows XP, you
should be able to extract Redis without any additional software. Do that now.

After you’ve extracted either the 32- or 64-bit version of Redis to a location of your
choice (depending on your platform and preferences; remember that 64-bit Windows
can run 32- or 64-bit Redis, but 32-bit Windows can only run 32-bit Redis), you can
start Redis by double-clicking on the redis-server executable. After Redis has
started, you should see a window similar to figure A.1.

Now that Redis is up and running, it’s time to download and install Python.
