on Windows


How can I install and use the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) on Windows?

The AWS CLI can be used for managing multiple AWS services, as well as automating common service and resource actions through scripts.

Note: To install the CLI on an instance, the instance needs Internet access via either a NAT instance or Internet gateway.

To install the AWS CLI on a Windows instance, follow the instructions at Install the AWS CLI Using the MSI Installer (Windows). AWS offers both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the installer.

To view a description of a command in the CLI, append help to the command per the instructions at Getting Help with the AWS Command Line Interface. For a general overview of how CLI commands are structured, see Command Structure in the AWS Command Line Interface.
