  == Quick Start ==
  So you just can't wait to relax can you? The fastest route is to:
  
   * unzip [[http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.19.5-win32-ssl-sspi.zip|curl]] and add to
your path
   * install the corresponding [[http://www.slproweb.com/download/Win32OpenSSL-1_0_0a.exe|win32
OpenSSL]] binaries to your system path
-  * run the latest [[http://github.com/couchapp/couchapp/downloads|couchapp installer]]
+  * run the latest [[http://couchapp.org/page/windows-python-installers|couchapp installer]]
-  * sign yourself up for the current free no-guarantees [[http://www.couch.io/get|beta cloud
hosting]] to get your own couch ready to go
+  * sign yourself up for the current free no-guarantees [[http://www.couchone.com/get|beta
cloud hosting]] to get your own couch ready to go
   * read the [[http://github.com/couchapp/couchapp/blob/master/README.md|quick start notes]]
on using [[http://www.couchapp.org/|CouchApp]]
   * wade into [[http://books.couchdb.org/relax/|the Definitive Guide]]
  
  
  == Run ==
-  * You can still complete compaction of your couch by stopping CouchDB and deleting/renaming
the appropriate data files - just be careful
   * the crash-safe storage engine means you can hibernate or reboot at will without data
loss
   * VSS snapshots for backup are a really good way to go
   * Firefox is the only supported browser for the test suite, but for almost anything else
a current version of IE will work "just fine". YMMV

   * For general usage of CouchDB and the essential [[http://www.couchapp.org|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.

  == Building from Source  ==
- Note the full build chain is documented in http://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/trunk/INSTALL.Windows
-- but again you don't need this for *installing* and *using* CouchDB on Windows.

a number of blog posts on this at http://dch.posterous.com/tag/couchdb
   * 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
  
  == Upgrade ==
   * recommendation is to backup, uninstall, re-install, validate using Futon test suite,
restore data, rather than an in-place upgrade
-  * this ensures you have a cruft-free experience while the windows build & installer
continues to change

its installer continues to change rapidly
  
  == Tricks and Traps ==
-  * 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
+  * 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. This has been worked around
in 1.0.1 and requires Erlang/OTP 14A. Recent installers have this built in.
   * if your installed CouchApp.exe doesn't start correctly, you may want to remove two DLLs
from it's folder - KernelBase.DLL and PowrProf.DLL which were present in CouchApp.0.6.exe
and should be removed.
   * Not much else really since 0.10 if you have any problems feel free to post to the list
for advice.
