Hello ArchivesSpace users,

Do you use Windows, either on your personal computer or for your institution's ArchivesSpace server? We are looking for people to test a new tool aimed at making installing or upgrading ArchivesSpace on Windows easier. The tool is available at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace-installer/releases/tag/v1.0.0-beta.
The instructions are linked from within the installer and also at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace-installer/blob/master/README.md. This tool is in beta and should only be used for a new installation or a backup of your existing installation.

(Note that installing ArchivesSpace is not necessary for people just using ArchivesSpace through their browser. This installer is for installing ArchivesSpace on a server. Even if you don't manage a server, however, it may be useful if have a Windows machine and have never installed ArchivesSpace before and want to learn a little more about how to do it or want to try out different server configurations on a local copy of ArchivesSpace.)

If you test this, or if you are interested in more information on how to test it, would you please contact me? We'd like to get a sense of whether it's helpful, any gaps in the tool or the instructions for how to use it, and other ideas people have for making installing or upgrading ArchivesSpace easier on Windows. Please feel free to pass this message along to anyone you think might be interested.

Thanks to everyone in the community who has offered feedback about ArchivesSpace and Windows, and a big thank you to Sarah Morrissey for working on this tool.
