Installation for Windows

[edit | edit source]

-Go to for version 3.0 (download harbour-3.0.0-win.exe), or head to for the latest Nightly Build (a more up-to-date version)
-Download and Install harbour-3.0.0-win.exe or harbour-nightly-win.exe and choose a destination folder - for example C:\hb30 if you downloaded version 3.0 (we'll assume you did so in the rest of the chapter)

HelloWorld test
-Open a CMD window (Go to Windows -> click on the "Start" button -> Type "cmd.exe" in the search box)
-Type "cd C:\hb30\tests" (without the quotes) on the cmd window and press "Enter"
-Type "C:\hb30\bin\hbmk2 hello.prg" (again, without the quotes) and press "Enter"
-Type "hello.exe" and press "Enter" (You should see "Hello world!" appears on the screen upon execution of the program)

The code of hello.prg looks like this:

? "Hello world!"
