Install Terraform for Azure Provider or on Windows 10

Terraform has been well known open-source infrastructure as code software tool created by HashiCorp , which enables users to define and provision a datacenter infrastructure using a high-level configuration language known as Hashicorp Configuration Language, or optionally JSON.
To install Terraform on windows 10 machine there are some simple steps you have to proceed with to get it done.

In the following article we will be focused around that.
Kindly open the following link in you browser and go to bottom to download it for windows
Though there will be various option available , but you choose an option to go with Windows 64 bit for windows 10.


Once you have download that (in my case: terraform_0.12.13_windows_amd64)
Just extract that and place in your desired drive like I have put it in C drive as shown below:

Windows 10 and Windows 8
1.     Go to Control Panel
2.     Click the Advanced system settings link or Search Advanced system settings in search. Refer advance-settings.jpg
3.     Click on Environment Variables  In the section System Variables, find the PATH environment variable and select it. After that click on Edit and enter the value as shown in image env_varibale.jpg
4.     In the Edit System Variable (or New System Variable) window, specify the value of the PATH environment variable. Click OK. Close all remaining windows by clicking OK.
