I reinstalled Kibana after downloading it from here and it's not in \bin, it's in the main Kibana directory C:\kibana-3.1.2\kibana.bat.
Here's its contents:
for %%I in ("%SCRIPT_DIR%..") do set DIR=%%~dpfI
WHERE /Q node
IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 (
for /f "delims=" %%i in ('WHERE node') do set SYS_NODE=%%i
If Not Exist "%NODE%" (
IF Exist "%SYS_NODE%" (
) else (
Echo unable to find usable node.js executable.
Exit /B 1
TITLE Kibana Server
"%NODE%" %NODE_OPTIONS% "%DIR%\src\cli" %*
I've done the same install under Linux, with ES and Kibana running on the same machine, and it was straightforward. However, on Windows it is unclear where one should put the unzipped directory, as that's not described in the guide. If you can provide some guidance on this I'd be happy to hear.
