Install MongoDB 3.2 on Windows

We can install MongoDB as a windows service. The steps are given below

Prerequisite –

Install Hotfix kb2731284 on the MongoDB Server on Windows Box

STEP1 – Download MongoDB

Download the latest release of MongoDB from and select the Mongo package based on an OS version

Have downloaded the 64 bit mongodb-win32-x86_64-3.2.0-signed.msi

STEP 2 – Create a folder c:\data\db

MongoDB requires a folder to store db files. The default location is c:\data\db

STEP 3 –

Double click the MSI package and use the default path

STEP 4 – Go to services manager and start the Mongodb service

STEP 5 –  Go to cmd prompt and browse till bin folder and type mongo to start the services


Note: Forefront client security was blocking the executable hence the service was not starting. I have stopped it to start the service.
