Hi. Here's what you need. 

Follow the below steps to install Flume on Windows:

Download Flume from the official website: http://flume.apache.org/download.html

Move the downloaded file to C drive:

Now extract the file by running the following command in command prompt:

$ cd C:\

$ tar -xvf apache-flume-1.9.0-bin.tar.gz

Now you have to add Flume path. Open the environment variable window. Refer to the below screenshots to add path

Now, go to the Flume folder and in that, you will find the folder named conf. Open it and in that, open the file called log4j.properties file with a text editor and make the following changes:

 flume.root.logger=DEBUG,console
 #flume.root.logger=INFO,LOGFILE

Copy the file flume-conf.properties.template, flume-env.ps1.template and rename them to flume-conf.properties, flume-env.ps1 respectively.

That’s it. To verify installation, open command prompt and run:

$ flume-ng –help

If Flume is properly installed, the manual of flume will be displayed.

i am getting one error.

C:\apache-flume-1.9.0-bin.tar\apache-flume-1.9.0-bin\bin\flume-ng.ps1 : A parameter cannot be found that matches
parameter name 'help'.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [flume-ng.ps1], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NamedParameterNotFound,flume-ng.ps1

There is no file named flume-env.ps1 by default. You have to create a duplicate of the file named flume-env.ps1.template and then rename it to flume-env.ps1
