Installing Neo4j on Windows is pretty straightforward, but the Neo4j installation instructions for Windows are lacking….this is all they have. It’s a little more involved than that.
Download and Install the Java JDK from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
I clicked on this graphic:
Download the Community Edition of Neo4j from http://www.neo4j.org/install
Open base.bat in c:\temp\Neo4j...\bin with your favorite text editor, I use Notepad++, but any text editor will do. >
Note if you don’t do this step you could get this exception when trying to install Neo4j
Error: Unable to access jarfile windows-service-wrapper-.jar > Find this line: > set wrapperJarFilename=windows-service-wrapper-.jar > Change it to: > set wrapperJarFilename=windows-service-wrapper-4.jar
Open a Command Prompt and navigate to c:\temp\Neo4j...\bin
You might get a UAC prompt if you just double click on it. If you do, click “More info”, then click “Run Anyway”
There are a lot of ways to get help…start with http://www.neo4j.org/participate.
