Hi Pratibha to install Golang, follow the mentioned steps:

  1. Go to this link. Now click the highlighted .msi file:

  2.  After completion of download, open the setup file (.msi). Click on 'Next' to start the setup wizard:

  3. Next you will see a 'End-User Licence Agreement' screen. Tick on 'Accept' and click 'Next':

  4. On the next screen, change the Destination folder by clicking on 'Change' or click on 'Next' to keep the destination folder to default:

  5. Finally click on 'Install' to start the installation process:

  6. Once the installation is complete, close the setup wizard by clicking 'Finish':

  7. Now you have successfully installed Golang on your system. But to use it, you have to setup the environment variable for Go. Follow the steps:
    File Explorer >> This PC >> Right Click & Select 'PROPERTIES' >> Advanced System Settings >> Click Environment Variables:

  8. Now click 'New' under 'System Variables' to add new system variable for Go:

  9. Set the 'Variable Name' and 'Variable Value' as mentioned below:

    And that's it. You are all set to Go!!!

Seems to be an error in the last step, where you set PATH=C:\Go\bin

Shouldn't that be: GO=C:\Go\bin

Hi Steve, setting PATH as C:\Go\bin means you are setting PATH for Go application, where PATH is like a reserved keyword for setting Path for all applications like Java or Python or Go. And it worked fine for me, as you can take a look at this screenshot:

Also, if you will set GO=C:\Go\bin, it still won't set the Path of System Variable and hence, your system won't be able to recognize this application's commands. So the last step is correct.
