How to install additional software when using the CircleCI windows image

Preinstalled Software

The CircleCI Windows image comes with software pre-installed . You can find a list of Software pre-installed in the Windows image here. The Windows image comes with Chocolatey Package Manager pre-installed too. 

Additional Software

If you require software that is not already pre-installed in the image, you can install it by adding an installation step. Below you can find an example `config.yml` that uses chocolatey to install python 3.8.0 :

 

version: 2.1
orbs:
  win: circleci/windows@2.4.1
jobs:
  install_python_3
    executor:
      name: win/default
    steps:
      - run: choco install python --version=3.8.0
      - run: python --version
