# Zato installation on Windows

## Requirements

• 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.

• 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.
