Many people want to use Metasploit Framework on Windows Systems. But they do not know how to install and set it up . For that I am here .
By knowing your system I refer to know about your Operating System , System Architecture , Random Access Memory in short RAM . Reason behind finding these is to see whether Metasploit Framework would be able to function well or not on your system.
As you can see in picture below , following are the specifications on which I am working .
Operating System : Windows 7 Professional
System Type : 32 -Bit
RAM : 1.00
This step is important as we want to know if we are eligible for recommended system requirements for using Metasploit on Windows.
The very first website would be probably Metasploit's official website . Open it.
Head to Download Section :
Since Metasploit officially ended the support for 32-Bit versions, you will see installer only for 64-Bit version for Windows . If you have 64-Bit system , you are good to go or if like me you are on 32-Bit system go to windows.metasploit.com to download Metasploit Installer for 32-Bit systems.
Install process is nearly same in both version installers. Download the file and proceed to installation.
File is about 255 MB , download and proceed to next step.
So you got the installer file let's install Metasploit-Framework:
Step : 1 : Execute the installer and click Next
Step : 2 : Accept the terms in License Agreement . Click Next
Step : 3 If you want to change the installation directory then change it or leave it as default . Proceed to next step by clicking Next
Step : 4 Click on Install button and wait while installation completes .
Step : 5 Click on Finish button to complete the installation .
Done , now the Metasploit is installed . As you can check in the installation directory .
NOTE : You will not get any icons after installation as metasploit is based on CLI or Command Line Interface .
Fire up Command Prompt and type " msfconsole "
