You can download the latest Windows MSI Installer on the Release Page, starting from 0.6.7.
Simply execute the installer package. You should get a few security prompts from Windows as the installer isn't signed; These are perfectly normal. (If you're wondering why I don't sign installers, this article is a good read.)
Once the install completes properly, you'll be able to launch the GUI from the shortcut in your Start Menu:
Starting the GUI for the first time will prompt you to setup your content folder and the port you want the server to listen on. The main GUI is always available from your Taskbar.
You can also decide whether to start the GUI alongside Windows, or start LRR alongside the GUI. Combining the two makes it so that LANraragi starts alongside Windows. 🔥🔥🔥
Once the program is running, you can open the Web Client through the shortcut button on the user interface. You can also toggle the Log Console on/off to see what's going on behind the scenes.
Simply download the latest zip and re-run the installer script.
Simply execute the uninstaller shortcut left in your Start Menu. Presto! Your database is not deleted in case you ever fancy coming back.
If the installer fails, it's likely because it can't enable the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) on your machine. Try running through the official Microsoft installation guide depicted here.
If WSL is installed properly but the tray GUI reports LANraragi as not being installed, try using the
wslconfig.exe /l command and make sure the "lanraragi" distribution is present.
The tray GUI will show the error message it encountered instead of the LRR Version number if it fails to detect the distro - This might help you troubleshoot further.
