 Apache CouchDB INSTALL.Windows
 ==============================
 
-For a high-level guide to Microsoft Windows.
+Due to the complexity of building CouchDB on the Windows platform,
+full build documentation and all necessary support files are in
+the couchdb-glazier repository.
 
-Troubleshooting
----------------
+Be sure to find the branch that matches the release you are building, for
+example `couchdb_2.0`.
 
-There is a troubleshooting guide:
-
-    http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Troubleshooting
-
-There is a wiki for general documentation:
-
-    http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/
-
-And some Windows-specific tips:
-
-    http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Quirks_on_Windows
-
-There are collection of friendly mailing lists:
-
-    http://couchdb.apache.org/community/lists.html
-
-Please work through these in order if you experience any problems.
-
-Dependencies
+Build & Test
 ------------
+Once all dependencies are built and installed per the documentation in
+couchdb-glazier, these commands will configure and build CouchDB:
 
-You will need the following installed:
-
- * Erlang OTP (>=R16B03-1, =<18.1) (http://erlang.org/)
- * ICU        (>=4.*)            (http://icu-project.org/)
- * OpenSSL    (>=0.9.8r)         (http://www.openssl.org/)
- * Mozilla SpiderMonkey (=1.8.5) (http://www.mozilla.org/js/spidermonkey/)
- * libcurl    (>=7.20)           (http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/)
- * Cygwin                        (http://www.cygwin.com/)
- * Microsoft SDK 7.0 or 7.1      (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279)
- * Python (>= 2.68) for docs     (http://python.org/)
- * Python Sphinx (>=1.1.3)       (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Sphinx)
-
-General Notes
--------------
-
- * When installing Cygwin, be sure to select all the `development` tools.
-
- * When installing Erlang, you must build it from source.
-
- * The CouchDB build requires a number of the Erlang build scripts.
-
- * All dependent libraries should be built with the same version of
-   microsoft SDK.
-
- * Do not try to link against libraries built with, or included in,
-   Cygwin or MingW. They are not compatible with the Erlang/OTP or CouchDB
-   build scripts.
-
- * ICU version 4.6 and later will build cleanly using MSBuild.
-
- * Python and Sphinx are optional for building the online documentation.
-   Use cygwin-provided Python and install Sphinx via easy_install or pip.
-   Further information is here http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools#id4
-
-Setting Up Cygwin
------------------
-
-Before starting any Cygwin terminals, run:
-
-    set CYGWIN=nontsec
-
-To set up your environment, run:
-
-    [VS_BIN]/vcvars32.bat
-
-Replace [VS_BIN] with the path to your Visual Studio `bin` directory.
-
-You must check that:
-
-    * The `which link` command points to the Microsoft linker.
-
-    * The `which cl` command points to the Microsoft compiler.
-
-    * The `which mc` command points to the Microsoft message compiler.
-
-    * The `which mt` command points to the Microsoft manifest tool.
-
-    * The `which nmake` command points to the Microsoft make tool.
-
-If you do not do this, the build may fail due to Cygwin ones found in `/usr/bin`
-being used instead.
-
-Building Erlang
----------------
-
-You must include Win32 OpenSSL, built statically from source. Use
-exactly the same version as required by the Erlang/OTP build process.
-
-However, you can skip the GUI tools by running:
-
-   echo "skipping gs" > lib/gs/SKIP
-
-   echo "skipping ic" > lib/ic/SKIP
-
-   echo "skipping jinterface" > lib/jinterface/SKIP
-
-Follow the rest of the Erlang instructions as described.
-
-After running:
-
-   ./otp_build release -a
-
-You should run:
-
-   ./release/win32/Install.exe -s
-
-This will set up the release/win32/bin directory correctly. The CouchDB
-installation scripts currently write their data directly into this
-location.
-
-To set up your environment for building CouchDB, run:
-
-    eval `./otp_build env_win32`
-
-To set up the `ERL_TOP` environment variable, run:
-
-    export ERL_TOP=[ERL_TOP]
-
-Replace `[ERL_TOP]` with the Erlang source directory name.
-
-Remember to use `/cygdrive/c/` instead of `c:/` as the directory prefix.
-
-To set up your path, run:
-
-    export PATH=$ERL_TOP/release/win32/erts-5.8.5/bin:$PATH
-
-If everything was successful, you should be ready to build CouchDB.
-
-Relax.
-
-Building CouchDB
-----------------
-
-Note that `win32-curl` is only required if you wish to run the developer
-tests.
-
-The documentation step may be skipped using `--disable-docs` if you wish.
-
-Once you have satisfied the dependencies you should run:
-
-    ./configure \
-        --with-js-include=/cygdrive/c/path_to_spidermonkey_include \
-        --with-js-lib=/cygdrive/c/path_to_spidermonkey_lib \
-        --with-win32-icu-binaries=/cygdrive/c/path_to_icu_binaries_root \
-        --with-erlang=$ERL_TOP/release/win32/usr/include \
-        --with-win32-curl=/cygdrive/c/path/to/curl/root/directory \
-        --with-openssl-bin-dir=/cygdrive/c/openssl/bin \
-        --with-msvc-redist-dir=/cygdrive/c/dir/with/vcredist_platform_executable \
-        --disable-init \
-        --disable-launchd \
-        --prefix=$ERL_TOP/release/win32
-
-This command could take a while to complete.
-
-If everything was successful you should see the following message:
-
-    You have configured Apache CouchDB, time to relax.
-
-Relax.
-
-To install CouchDB you should run:
-
-    make install
-
-If everything was successful you should see the following message:
-
-    You have installed Apache CouchDB, time to relax.
-
-Relax.
-
-To build the .exe installer package, you should run:
-
-    make dist
-
-Alternatively, you may run CouchDB directly from the build tree, but
-to avoid any contamination do not run `make dist` after this.
-
-First Run
----------
-
-You can start the CouchDB server by running:
-
-    $ERL_TOP/release/win32/bin/couchdb.bat
-
-When CouchDB starts it should eventually display the following message:
-
-    Apache CouchDB has started, time to relax.
-
-Relax.
-
-To check that everything has worked, point your web browser to:
+    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Bypass .\configure.ps1 -WithCurl
+    make -f Makefile.win check
 
-    http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/index.html
+This will build couchdb, as well as run the eunit and javascript tests.
 
-From here you should run the verification tests in Firefox.
+As of CouchDB 2.0 RC1, all eunit and javascript tests should pass.
