How to install i-doit on Windows operating system is described in this article.
The i-doit installation package for Windows is provided in the Customer Portal.

The contents of the package are as follows:

  • i-doit Windows Installer.exe
  • windowsdesktop-runtime-6.0.14-win-x64.exe

The installation package will always include the latest i-doit version. Also the folder allows for an installation without internet connection.
Since the i-doit Windows installer requires windowsdesktop-runtime-6.0.14, this is also provided in case there is no internet connection available.


After running the i-doit Windows Installer.exe you will see the following GUI:


After clicking Install, all the required items will be installed in the background.

The following will be installed:

  • Apache 2.4
  • PHP 8.0
  • MariaDB 10.5
  • i-doit-24

If the Windows Firewall is activated, you will be asked if want to trust the application

If the installation was successful, a small window with the message "i-doit has been installed successfully." will display.
After clicking OK a new browser tab with the localhost URL will be opened automatically and you can use i-doit to the full extent.

If an error occurred during the installation, a log file is automatically created in the i-doit folder


To configure PHP, MariaDB or Apache, you can find the respective config files in the following directories:

To uninstall i-doit, the Apache2 service must be stopped first.
For this we enter the following command in the command prompt:

C:\i-doit\apache-2.4\bin\httpd.exe -k stop

Once the Apache2 service is stopped, Apache2 can be uninstalled:

C:\i-doit\apache-2.4\bin\httpd.exe -k uninstall

Afterwards MariaDB is uninstalled by removing MariaDB under Add or Remove Programs.

Uninstall MariaDB

Alternatively, MariaDB can also be uninstalled via the command prompt:

msiexec.exe C:\i-doit\mariadb-10.5\mariadb-10.5.19-winx64.msi /qn REMOVE=ALL

Uninstall MariaDB without deleting data:

msiexec.exe C:\i-doit\mariadb-10.5\mariadb-10.5.19-winx64.msi /qn REMOVE=ALL CLEANUPDATA=""

Now the i-doit folder must be deleted and the PHP PATH must be removed from the environment variables:
