- This page will help you relax on Windows just as much as anywhere else.
+ Using CouchDB does not require installing cygwin, or becoming a command-line guru. If you
get stuck here your best bet is irc://irc.freenode.net/couchdb or the mailing list. This page
will help you relax on Windows just as much as anywhere else!
  
- == Build ==
+ == Tools ==
+ * For general usage of CouchDB and the essential CouchApp tool, get the following bits installed
& added to your path.
+ * in each case we list the tool, site, then the version last tested with in case you get
stuck with version creep
+ * the 32-bit tools are recommended even on 64-bit platforms for the moment.

-- but again you don't need this for *installing* and *using* CouchDB on Windows.
   * use only 32-bit components even if you are building on a 64-bit architecture
   * make sure you have a clean path with your build chain first - watch out for other developer
tools like git, which may have older versions of OpenSSL or ICU binaries in your path
   * Firefox is the only supported browser for running the Futon test suite - some tests still
fail due to platform differences however
-  * Online compaction is not supported on Windows due to differences between UX and Windows
on renaming/deleting files that are open in another process/thread
  
  == Upgrade ==
   * recommendation is to backup, uninstall, re-install, validate using Futon test suite,
restore data, rather than an in-place upgrade
