Zato installation on Windows


  • Windows 10, 11, Server 2019 or Server 2022
  • Python 3.10 64-bit

Installation steps

  • Install Python 3.10. During the installation, choose the option to install Python for all users in the system.

  • Click here to download the installer for Python 3.10

  • Run the extracted .msi package which will perform an unattended installation, without asking any questions

    Zato will be installed to %LocalAppDataFolder%\Zato-3.2-Python-Version. For instance, if your user is "David" and the Python version is 3.10 then the full path to the "zato" command will be C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\zato-3.2-python-3.10\code\Scripts\".

  • Open a cmd.exe or PowerShell window

  • Confirm the installation, making sure that you use the full path to the "zato" command:

    C:\full\path\to\zato --version
    # Sample output: Zato 3.2+rev.227732190-py3.10.7-windows-10-10.0.20348-sp0-ServerDatacenter

    For guidance, below are the same confirmation steps as above in a sample screenshot from an actual system. The user is "dsuch", Python version is 3.10 and the full path is "c:\Users\dsuch\AppData\Local\zato-3.2-python-3.10\code\Scripts\zato".

That concludes the process - you can refer to the main documentation index now.
