Elasticsearch-6.5.4 protocol http not supported or disabled in libcurl


I just downloaded the elastic : elasticsearch-6.5.4.zip

I unzip the files and launch elastic with the command : bin\elasticsearch.bat
I'm on Windows 10 64bits

When I launch the following command for my first indexing :
curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/_doc/1?pretty' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '
"user": "kimchy",
"post_date": "2009-11-15T13:12:00",
"message": "Trying out Elasticsearch, so far so good?"

I have an error message as you can see on my screeshot :

Thanks very much for your assistance


Please don't post images of text as they are hardly readable and not searchable.

Instead paste the text and format it with </> icon. Check the preview window.

curl on windows is a pain.
I would highly recommend starting Kibana which has a developer console.

Thanks for your assistance @dadoonet

I have the impression that kibana is not in the file elasticsearch-6.5.4.zip I downloaded.
I will install kibana an check

Can anyone suggest an alternative to windows cmd?


See https://www.elastic.co/downloads/kibana to download Kibana.

BTW you should better start with 7.1.0.
