All installers are available from https://launchpad.net/bzr/+download (older, and sometimes newer if this page has not been updated yet).

The Standalone Installer

This is typically the best choice for most users and includes:

  • the core Bazaar distribution
  • help in Windows Help (chm) format
  • GUI clients - Bazaar Explorer, QBzr and optionally TortoiseBZR

  • numerous bundled plugins including BzrTools, bzr-svn, bzr-upload and bzr-xmloutput

  • bundled Python (Python 2.6 for bzr 2.2 and later, and Python 2.5 for older versions) interpreter with all the libraries you need.

You can use most of the Bazaar plugins ( excluding bzr-gtk and Loggerhead) as long as they are installed in your Application Data/bazaar/2.0/plugins directory.

Python-based Installers

If you have Python 2.4/2.5/2.6/2.7 already installed on your system, then you may prefer a Python-based installer instead of the standalone installer. These contain Bazaar source, documentation and a handy uninstall feature (via usual Add/Remove Programs dialog).

You must install all dependencies by yourself. On the other hand, this version has no limitations on which plugins can be used.

Note for Python 2.4 users: you must have either pywin32 or ctypes installed.

Note that this only works with 32-bit Python, due to bug 331342.

Cygwin

Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. Install bazaar using the standard Cygwin installer setup.exe (see top right icon at homepage) and select package bzr. After installation, the program is available at Cygwin's shell (see Windows Start menu > Cygwin).

Source

See install from source.

Test results

As we recently improved the standalone installer, we're collecting test results for various Windows versions. If you'd like to assist, please update WindowsTesting for your Windows version if appropriate.
