Installation instructions

Have a look at the Getting started page in the wiki.
If you have problems, read the frequently asked questions topic.

From zip:
Extract the zip package somewhere (be sure that you have write access - don't extract it in “Program Files”). Run the executable found in the bin/ folder.

From installer:
Follow the instructions given when you run the installer executable.
To run Minetest, click the icon in the start menu, or the desktop. Alternatively go to C:/Minetest/bin and run the executable.
Note that the installer installs the same version as in the .zip (be sure that you have write access - don't install it to “Program Files”).
