Installation on Windows Using the Zulu MSI File

Before you install Zulu, complete the tasks in the section, Preparing the Zulu Installation Platform.

  1. Download the installation package to your local Downloads folder.

  2. Choose a method for running the installer.

    1. Run the package installer as Administrator, from the Windows command line.

      > msiexec /i <zulu_package>.msi /qn

    2. Run the package installer as Administrator, from the Windows command line and installing Zulu in a non-default location.

      > msiexec /i <zulu_package>.msi APPLICATIONROOTDIRECTORY="absolute_path_to_dir" /qn

    3. Use the Setup Wizard. Double-click the <zulu_package>.msi file, make your selections and click Next as the screens are displayed. Screens include:

      1. Zulu Welcome page

      2. Selecting a Destination Folder

        Accept the default Destination Folder, or click Change to enter an alternative destination. For example:

        C:\Program Files\Zulu\<zulu-jdk>

        Where jdk in <zulu-jdk> stands for the version of Zulu you need to install, for example, zulu-11.

        Optionally, you can select a different directory through the Install Directory dialog. However, if you alter the installation path, the \<zulu_jdk> subdirectory will not be created and selected directory becomes the root Zulu directory. For example, if you select C:\temp, Zulu will be installed into the C:\temp directory and the path to java.exe will be C:\temp\bin\java.exe.

      3. Confirming readiness to install

      4. Finishing Completed Zulu Setup Wizard

If you accepted the installation defaults, Zulu is installed at: C:\Program Files\Zulu\zulu-8\
