Using DX on Windows

Note: If you plan to do most of your interaction with the platform via the website, and will use the command line only to upload files, use the Upload Agent, which is also compatible with Windows.

To install the DNAnexus command line client on Windows, first please download and install ActivePython 2.7.

Then, open your command line prompt (Start → Run →cmd) and type the following command to install dxpy:

pip install dxpy

You are now ready to use the DNAnexus command line client dx. See the Command Line Quickstart to get started.
