Installing InfluxDB on Windows

#1

Hello,
I am new to using InfluxDB but am very eager to get it working in my lab.
I have just downloaded version 1.4.6 from this link https://portal.influxdata.com/downloads#influxdb
I have unzipped the file, but there are only binary files there.
I am unsure about how to proceed with the installation since there is no exectuable file, and have not found a solution online.
I would be very grateful for any help about how to proceed with this download (as in what to do with the binary files).
Thank you very much,

I believe the .exe was left off in the build process. Simply rename the files with the .exe extension and they should be fine.

Hey David,
Thanks for the response. Should I rename all of the files with the.exe extension or just influxd?
Best,
