How to install MongoDB latest version in windows 32-bit system?

I have system configuration:

Windows 8.1
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-3110M CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40GHz
System Type: 32-bit Operating System, x64 based processor

  1. Tried from MongodB Community Center, but giving below error

  2. I got this link: https://www.mongodb.org/dl/win32 and download from:
    http://downloads.mongodb.org/win32/mongodb-win32-x86_64-2012plus-4.2.12-signed.msi

but it shows below error:

Is there any other option to download mongodb latest version?

Hi @turivishal,

  1. Windows 8.1 isn’t supported by Microsoft since January 9, 2018. So I recommend you update your system to a newer version of Windows that is more secured and regularly updated.

  2. MongoDB stopped the support for all 32 bits OS a while ago because it’s limited to about 2GB of RAM which is simply not enough to run something in production and it was too complicated / costly to support both 32 and 64 bits systems in the code.

  3. So maybe you can use Docker or a VM to simulate a 64 bits system ─ but you will likely have similar issues with these ─ and then deploy MongoDB in it but I think it’s time for an update to 64 bits :slight_smile:.

  4. You can use MongoDB Atlas to deploy your cluster in the cloud (Free Tier available).

Cheers,
Maxime.
