  1. (In Windows) Ensure that Tomcat is started by checking to see if icon in the tray is green
  2. Download the latest stable release of OpenMRS
  3. Navigate to http://localhost:8080/manager/html and enter your Tomcat administrator credentials (username and password chosen when installing Tomcat)
  4. In the Tomcat Web Application Manager, enter the location of the downloaded openmrs.war file to deploy
    1. The deployment could take some time while the file is copied to the folder C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps and decompressed
    2. Note that the OpenMRS.war file is most easily downloaded with Mozilla Firefox. Internet Explorer tries to open the file as a Zip file.
  5. At the end of this process, the web page will refresh and /openmrs should be displayed under Applications. Apache Tomcat should also start the application (Running = True; and in Commands, Stop is underlined)

Note: Another way to do this is just unzipping the .war file directly under webapps folder in Tomcat and then restarting it. You will be able to access http://localhost:8080/openmrs and the installation wizard will appear.
