Code Base Installation Guide for Windows 10 64bit


#1

Hi all, I’ve managed to get the code base installed on my Win10 machine. Thought I’d create a quick install guide for those wanting to do the same

Access it here

Let me know if it needs any changes made to it

I’m sorry richard - I have like zero tech experience so I will be needing some help here. I have got up to step 10, where I get an error in the command prompt.

Here is how far my command prompt got:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.165]

C:\Users\cityzenfarm>vagrant up
Bringing machine ‘default’ up with ‘virtualbox’ provider…

Thanks if you can help me out!

@richard That’s great, thanks so much for providing this content.

@justin42 @richard Just to be sure and clarify, the command suggestions do an ls, so in what propmpt are we working here throughout the installations, respectively?

@justin42 You can also do code-like blocks with > and `.

C:\Users\cityzenfarm>vagrant up

resp.

C:\Users\cityzenfarm>vagrant up

Hi Justin,

When you downloaded the Constellation Zip folder, where did you extract it to? You should have a constellation-master folder

You need to Change Directory into that folder.

For example, my constellation-master folder is in the root of my C Drive, so I type

‘C:\constellation-master’

Then, from within that folder, I type ‘Vagrant up’

Which should then start the rest of the process

Hope this helps…good luck, man!

I couldn’t get the code blocks to work :thinking:


#6

Yup, it worked…and got much further. I got hit with another snag, though - which I may post later. It just goes to show how not techy I am though…so I am not sure if I am meant for the challenge or to run a node.

Hey @justin42, you should definitely post about it :slight_smile: This helps us document things better. And of course, we have an amazing community and members like @richard who help out with documenting for the community.
