Setting Up WizBot on Windows With the Updater

This applies to WizBot version 2. For WizBot version 3 with all the latest improvements and features, click here.

Note: If you want to make changes to WizBot's source code, please follow the From Source guide instead.
If you have Windows 7 or a 32-bit system, please refer to the From Source guide.




  • Download and run the WizBot Updater. Currently not avaliable.
  • Click on Install Redis to install Redis.
  • Select this option during the Redis installation:
  • Redis PATH
  • Click on Install ffmpeg and Install youtube-dl if you want music features.
  • Click on Update and go through the installation wizard to install WizBot.
  • When installation is finished, make sure the Open credentials.json option is checked.
If you happen to close the wizard with that option unchecked, you can easily find the credentials file in C:\Program Files\WizBot\system.

Starting the bot

  • Either click on Launch Bot button in the updater or run the bot via its desktop shortcut.

Updating WizBot

  • Make sure WizBot is closed and not running
    (Run .die in a connected server to ensure it's not running).
  • Open WizBot Updater
  • If updates are available, you will be able to click on the Update button
  • Launch the bot
  • You've updated and are running again, easy as that!

If the updater fails to install the prerequisites for any reason

You can still install them manually:
  • Redis Installer - Download and run the .msi file
  • ffmpeg-32bit | ffmpeg-64bit - Download the appropriate version for your system (32 bit if you're running a 32 bit OS, or 64 if you're running a 64bit OS). Unzip it, and move ffmpeg.exe to a path that's in your PATH environment variable.
  • youtube-dl - Click to download the file. Then put youtube-dl.exe in a path that's in your PATH environment variable.
