An OSTraining member asked how to use the Drupal VM environment on Windows. Drupal VM is a virtual machine that contains many convenient utilities for local Drupal development

In this tutorial, we will install Drupal VM in a few simple steps.


First, you will need to download the following:

4# cd into the folder with the administrative command prompt

with my setup that would be :

cd d:\drupalvmtest\drupal

Step #2. Initiate Vagrant

vagrant up

This can take around minutes depending on how good your machine is. However, everything is 100% automated, so you can leave it working and check back later.
