Correct, Windows is not yet supported. There is only a handful of early adopters who have required Windows so it has not been a priority.

However, it will be fairly easy to add it, and we plan on integrating Windows by the time we are publicly live.

Are you using Windows in CI as well? Or just locally while you develop? Any additional info about your organization / its size would be helpful to prioritize Windows support.

I'm in a company of 7. We all use windows for local dev.

Error message updated in 0.15.3 when desktop app downloaded in Windows:

Sorry, Windows is not yet supported. We currently support OSX and Linux.

You can use Cypress if you install a Linux VM using something like VirtualBox.

Windows will be supported prior to our public release, there is not a specific date set for this.

In our company we also have a lot of windows system for local dev.
Can't wait to be able to test your testing framework on Windows.

I was quite in favour of a Windows client, but then I realised I do everything in Docker already (including Selenium testing), so if there is a Docker image ready to go, that's a route in for me.

Primarily on the dev machine but support for running CI on Windows would be great, too so customers of Visual Studio Team Services can run it.

@brian-mann @jennifer-mann - in regard to fairly easy to add mentioned on top, in orders of magnitude, is that weeks or months, and is a live public release in 2016 a possibility, or is it not on near horizon?

Also voicing support for Windows... err... support. I was excited to show colleagues the tool but we're running a mix of Mac/Win with the majority being Windows users so that's going to be tricky

I was really disappointed to find out there is no Windows support. For the past 6 years of my career I've nearly always worked in a mostly Windows dev evironments in small and big companies.
I will try it out on a Linux VM and I would hope all would work out fine !

+1 for the Windows port !

@brian-mann as far as I understand cypress is now publicly live. Is there an ETA for Windows support?

We are not publicly live. Windows is something we are looking at investing developer time into supporting but it will happen after being live. You'll see our 0.20.0 + 1.0.0 release soon.

frattaro commented Aug 22, 2017

I didn't want to wait. Installed VirtualBox, Ubuntu, java8, Eclipse and the TFS plugin for it, nodejs-legacy, npm, git, cypress-cli, cypress and started coding.

Outside of overcoming the learning curve of all of the above (never used any of them), I ran into the following issues along the way:
(Edit: forgot I had to change a BIOS setting to allow virtualization... something something....)
VirtualBox over Cisco's AnyConnect VPN, no internet access in Ubuntu instance
apt-get install nodejs doesn't work, needs nodejs-legacy
npm registry blocked by corporate firewall
git is an unlisted dependency of cypress-cli

It was very late in the process I saw a small mention of a TFS plugin for IntelliJ, which I hear is "better".

Our CI has both, Linux and Windows machines, but our devs are mostly on Windows (dictated by the company policy for some weird reason), so it would be nice to be able to run Cypress on Win indeed!

We got Cypress running on Win10 (inside VirtualBox), and we need a few more tweaks to make this production ready. Here is a screenshot, wish there was a screenshot of the team standing around the laptop and watching Cy run on Windows 😀

I'm working for an international company. More than 50 devs in this building alone, all using Windows for local development. Requiring Macs is a dealbreaker for us, probably as well as 90% of the market. Looking forward to that Windows support!
