1. Download the Memcached Win32 library here: http://code.jellycan.com/memcached. Just get the Win32 binary (direct link). Extract the downloaded archive file in a directory (e.g. c:memcached). There should be a memcached.exe in there.
  2. Run a command prompt as an administrator. Some info on how to do that here.
  3. Install memcached as a service. Go to the memcached directory, type and run:

    memcached.exe -d install

    If you get an error saying “MSVCP71.dll is missing”, see this page for a solution.

  4. Start the memcached service by running:

    memcached.exe -d start
  5. You can verify if memcached is running by executing this in the command line:

    wmic process get description, executablepath | findstr memcached.exe

    You should see a result list showing memcached.exe and its full path.
