Install Memcached on Windows 7

To install Memcached on Windows 7 you need administrative rights. Grab your copy of Memcached for Windows (I got it from here, so I will explain this one). Now follow the steps below:

  1. Download and unzip Memcached binaries.
  2. Press the Win key, type cmd, press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
  3. Select yes from elevation prompt.
  4. A command window will open with administrative rights.
  5. Go to Memcached folder (mine is c:\memcached\)
  6. Type and run [ c:\>memcached -d install ], this will install Memcached as service.
  7. Now start the service with [ c:\>memcached -d start ]
  8. FIN
Now Memcached is installed and running.
Enjoy!!
