Installing UnxUtils on Windows


This is only a short post covering the installation of UnxUtils. I previously covered installing Git and following this post will be how to install and configure Jenkins.

Jenkins requires some Unix utilities to work so it is advised to install UnxUtils which can be downloaded from

Once downloaded, extract the files from the ZIP folder and put them in your folder of choice e.g. C:\UnxUtils.

Add the path to the Windows PATH environmental variable.

Open a new DOS command prompt and test this by typing “sh” then type “exit” to leave the Bash shell.


If I find anything further that needs doing, or anything else useful from using UnxUtils, I’ll document it.
