Installing Filebeat on Windows


I am trying to install Filebeat on windows7 64 bit. I entered the following commands while running cmd with elevated rights.

cd C:\elastic\filebeat-5.2.1-windows-x86_64

filebeat-5.2.1-windows-x86_64>filebeat.exe -e -c filebeat.yml -d "publish"

The error I got is filebeat.exe is not a valid wind32 application
filebeat.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command or operation batch file.

Try adding a .\ in front so that it doesn't search along the %PATH% for filebeat.exe.

> .\filebeat.exe -e -c filebeat.yml -d "publish"


I tried this but it's not working.
Still showing the error filebeat.exe is not a valid Win2 application

Maybe you have a corrupted binary. Can you try to download the file again and verify the integrity of the zip against the published sha1 value from the download site.
