If you do not clone the bot using Git, and instead download the ZIP file from GitHub and attempt to run it, you will receive an error.

MusicBot can be installed on Windows 7, 8, and 10 too, though it requires installing some programs on your computer first.

  1. Install Python 3.7.
  2. During the setup, tick Install launcher for all users (recommended) and Add Python 3.7 to PATH when prompted.
  3. Install Git for Windows.
  4. During the setup, tick Git from the command line and also 3rd-party software, Checkout Windows-style, commit Unix-style endings, and Use MinTTY (the default terminal MSYS2).
  5. Open Git Bash by right-clicking an empty space inside of a folder (e.g My Documents) and clicking Git Bash here.
  6. Run git clone MusicBot -b master in the command window that opens.

After doing that, a folder called MusicBot will appear in the folder you opened Git Bash in. Configure your bot, then run update.bat to update your dependencies, then run.bat to start the MusicBot.
