Installing the mongo Shell for Windows

In the second chapter he says
"If you’re on Windows, please see the video
for installing the mongo shell on Windows systems. "
But where is this video? I can’t see any link

I can see it: https://cdnapisec.kaltura.com/p/1858111/sp/185811100/playManifest/entryId/1_icam6ow5/format/download/protocol/https/1_icam6ow5.mp4

However, it is not needed - just install by clicking and maybe PATH variable change and it is done. It does not require any special settings or tunning

I have been trying to install the MongoDB shell in my windows 7 machine. But it doesnt complete successfully. The status message: Installing MongoDB Compass... (this may take few minutes) runs persistently. Whats the way round this.

Hi @Binah_67391,

Please have a look at this post. If you have downloaded MSI package then try downloading MongoDB Enterprise Server ZIP package and re install.

If it does not resolve the issue then while installing mongodb on your system uncheck the box which says Install MongoDB Compass and then proceed with the installation.

Hope it helps!

If the issue still persists then please feel free to get back to us.

Happy Learning :slight_smile:
