Installing MiNiFi Java on Windows

Learn how to install MiNiFi Java using a Windows MSI.

Before you begin your MiNiFi Java installation, ensure that you meet the following requirements:
  • Install JDK 8.0 64 bit.
  • Install Java to C:/java instead of C:/Program Files. Recent Windows versions mark everything in C:\Program Files as read only.
  • Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable using the 8.3 style name conventions. For example: C:\Program\jdk1.8.0.
  • Ensure JAVA_HOME is pointing to a 64-bit JRE/JDK.
  • Ensure the Domain user has administrator privilege.
  • Ensure that your system meets the minimum memory requirement for Windows which is 4GB.
  1. Extract the MiNiFi Java MSI files from the repo location<version>/minifi-<version>-<build-number>.msi to the location where you want to run the application.
  2. Execute the MSI.
