Getting started

Let’s walk through installing Euphoria 4.1 on Windows 10.

Download

Head over to the Downloads page and grab the latest build for your system. If you are using 64-bit Windows then I would recommend using 64-bit Euphoria. Some things may not work correctly with 64-bit (such as Win32Lib), but later I will show you how to set up multiple development environments to toggle between each version.

These are the files you’ll want to download:

Architecture Filename Size
Windows 32-bit euphoria-4.1.0-x86.exe 9,299 kB
Windows 64-bit euphoria-4.1.0-x64.exe 10,650 kB

Installation

Launch the installer you downloaded and step through the installation.

Step 1: Welcome

Click Next to begin.

Step 2: License Agreement

Accept the license agreement and click Next.

Step 3: Information

Click Next to continue.

Step 4: Select Destination Location

If you plan on installing multiple versions of Euphoria on one system (we’ll get into that in a later article), then I suggest naming the destination with the version number, e.g. C:\Euphoria41.

Click Next to continue.

Step 5: Select Components

Select the components to install. You can accept the defaults here. Feel free turn off Source code, Unit tests, and even Tutorials if you want to save the 4 MB or so of space.

Click Next to continue.

Step 6: Select Start Menu Folder

I don’t think you need a Start Menu folder created, so I typically check Don’t create a Start Menu folder.

Click Next to continue.

Step 7: Select Additional Tasks

Again, you don’t need to Associate file associations. You can also skip Update environment if you want to do that manually (we’ll cover in the Environment section).

Click Next to continue.

Step 8: Installing

Step 9: Information

You don’t need to reboot your system right now.

Click Next to continue.

Step 10: Complete

And we’re done! Click Finish. Next we’ll verify your environment settings.

Environment

Step 1: System Properties

Click Start, type environment, and then click Edit the system environment variables.

This actually opens the System Properties control panel for some reason. Click the Environment Variables… button.

Step 2: Environment Variables

If you selected Update environment in Step 7 above, then you should see your Euphoria path listed here, e.g. C:\Euphoria\bin. If it’s listed here then skip down to verify your installation. Otherwise, proceed to the next step and we’ll add it manually.

Step 3: Edit Environment Variables

Click New to add a new value.

Type in C:\Euphoria\bin and press Enter.

When you’re done, click OK, OK, OK to save and close everything.

Step 4: Verify Your Installation

Click Start, type command prompt, and then click Command Prompt.

Type eui -v and press Enter. This should display the currently installed version of Euphoria.

That’s it! You’re all done.
