Turn Raw Data into Smart Applications. Quickly.
Before you start, you should know that these instructions apply only to the Free Edition of Dataiku. Enterprise installations should be performed on a Linux server that will then be accessible by users of any computer/OS (including Windows!) through a web browser.
While Dataiku DSS is not designed to natively run on Windows nor is it supported on that platform, it can still be installed on Windows 10 (64-bits) thanks to the Windows Subsystem for Linux. This approach requires having administrator rights on your Windows PC and some level of IT know-how (so you may also want to consider other installation options described at the bottom of this page, if possible).
In order to install DSS on Windows 10, you first need to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux as described here. For maximum Dataiku compatibility we suggest you select either the Ubuntu or Debian distribution during installation. You will need to initialize your distribution.
Once that is completed you can install Dataiku DSS from your Windows Subsystem for Linux by following the Dataiku DSS Linux installation steps. Please note that Dataiku DSS will not work properly if it is installed in a mounted directory accessible from Windows (ex: /mnt/c/).
Even though Dataiku DSS instance will be running from your Windows Subsystem Linux, you can connect to it directly from your Windows browser (the default link is http://localhost:11000/home/).
Once setup properly, you will also be able to directly start your Dataiku DSS instance from Windows 10 command line with the command : bash.exe -c "[Dataiku DATA_DIR Path in WSL]/bin/dss start"
If you don't have access to a Linux server, several options are at your disposal to test DSS:
