I'm not a window guy and I've found installing Nim easy on Linux and Mac however I tried to install Nim on a windows test machine and found it difficult. Its still now working. I tried both the download on the website and choosenim. The nim installer seems to think the path is set but it definitely isn't.

I'm not really looking for a solution to my specific problem at this point. I just think it should be easier for windows users to install and there should be some kind of trouble shooting faq.

Choosenim was designated as a trojan by the windows defender.

Just grab the zip and extract them to some directory.

What's the actual path set in settings? Both the current user and the global path? And what's the Nim directory location? What's the output from finish.exe? 2018-05-01 20:25:10
I've managed to get it installed and compiling programs.
  1. Issue was executing finish.exe from the command prompt. ( Double click in GUI got path set correctly )
  2. nimble doesn't work for me from command prompt because git is not in the windows path
  3. nimble and compiling program work from git bash

It would be handy if these were in a trouble shooting faq.
