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

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

Note: To install the AWS CLI on an instance, the instance needs internet access by means of a NAT instance or an internet gateway.

To install the AWS CLI on a Windows instance, follow the instructions at Install the AWS Command Line Interface on Microsoft Windows. AWS offers both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the installer.

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

Note: You can also use an automated solution to install the AWS CLI with user data scripts to pass a PowerShell command to the Windows instance on launch. For more information, see Running Commands on Your Windows Instance at Launch.
