How do I manually install the AWS CLI on an Amazon EC2 Windows instance?
Last updated: 2020-11-18
You can use the AWS CLI to manage multiple AWS services and to automate common service and resource actions through scripts.
Note: To install the AWS CLI on an instance, the instance must have internet access using a network address translation (NAT) instance or an internet gateway.
For instructions to install the AWS CLI on a Windows instance, see Installing, updating, and uninstalling the AWS CLI version 2 on Windows.
Important: If you already have AWS CLI version 1 installed, it's a best practice to uninstall version 1 and use only AWS CLI version 2.
To view a description of a command in the AWS CLI, append help to the command. For more information, see Getting help with the AWS CLI.
