If you are building a CouchApp, for simplicity, you can also maybe checkout Ryan Ramage's CouchApp
It will install CouchDB on Macs and PCs in the background (as well as your CouchApp) as long
as the user has the latest Java. It'll install your CouchApp as a native looking app, and
run it in the user's default browser. You can get CouchDB running on a user's machine in about
2-6 minutes (depending on download speed) without them having to know they have installed
anything but your app. And CouchApp Takeout is extremely easy to set up (it's a CouchApp itself,
so you just replicate it to your db, and make a few minor changes to JSON and two images).

Thank you all. I'm targeting Windows platform - so I'll be glad to hear
how can I run the database there.
It's not going to be in-process but I do need a seamless way to run it
without the client install it manually.


You can bundle couchdb inside another windows app without users
needing to install it separately. Check "Integrating CouchDB
into your Windows Applications", and make sure you include the
appropriate VC runtimes either in your app or as a dependency.

I've found that you can also remove the two erl.ini files completely
and Erlang/CouchDB seems to run just fine without them. You'll still
need to fiddle your local.ini files for the correct paths of course.
