You may need to add the directory where the vw executable resides to PATH (in your ~/.bashrc), so you can execute vw from any directory and from any shell:

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH

Next step: tutorial


  1. Find directory that vw.exe was placed in
    1. If "Debug" and "x64" were used it will be in: <repo_root>\vowpalwabbit\out\target\Debug\x64\
    2. If CMake was used it will be in the build directory: <repo_root>\build\vowpalwabbit\
  2. Add that directory to the system PATH variable
