Trouble Installing Solana Tool Suite

Hello, I am trying to download Solana tool suite on windows. I’ve been using the directions on this page Install the Solana Tool Suite | Solana Docs.

but it doesn’t work. I will enter the first command and it will seem like it downloaded within a second, so i do the next command and it says “The system cannot execute the specified program”. I am using command prompt as administrator and am following the directions exactly how they say on the site but just cannot get it to work. If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

I’ve heard of several users with issues installing on Windows.

You may want to try following the Linux install instructions inside of WSL, which is required anyway if you want to develop Solana programs.
