Getting started with Redis on Windows is easy:
1. Download the latest .exe package from https://github.com/rgl/redis/downloads (choose the appropriate latest 32 or 64 bit version).
2. Running the exe will install Redis as a service and install the Redis client.
I got an issue when installing the service through the setup. I had to do so manually using this command (ensure that you run cmd as Administrator):
sc create redis binPath= "C:\Program Files\Redis\redis-service.exe redis conf/redis.conf"
Note that Windows is particularly fussy about the space after binPath=, and paths with spaces must be wrapped with quotes.
