[As community content, this post reflects the views and opinions of the particular author and does not necessarily reflect the official stance of Neo4j.]Let’s face the facts: Not every developer works on a Mac. For those of you who make Bill Gates proud (sorry, Steve), you can still enjoy all the benefits of Neo4j. In fact, installing Neo4j 2.2.3 on Windows OS is simple. In this week’s community post, I’m going to walk you through how to set up Neo4j on a Windows-based machine as well as how to switch databases using the launcher application. Here’s an overview of the five fast and easy steps we’ll cover:
- Navigating your browser to the Neo4j download page.
- Running the installer.
- Starting Neo4j for the first time.
- Allocating enough memory to your page cache.
- Editing memory levels to your virtual machine (VM).
