Installing composer

I ran into a problem…

Have you actually downloaded it though? If you have, you should really be using the Command Prompt for that. If you haven’t, you’ll have to download it from here https://getcomposer.org/. Composer isn’t a built-in tool or even a default tool on Windows. It’s a 3rd party tool.

It seems to me that in the first and last (same?) screen shots, you’re typing compser - shouldn’t it be composer with the o in it? I haven’t used it much, but I’ve typed composer when I have.

(Slightly O/T, but doesn’t PowerShell go on a bit? All that red text appears to be saying is “command not found”.)

A little, perhaps. The first line is what went wrong, the second is a basic verification/remedy, and the rest is where it happened and what specifically failed (more helpful in full on scripts than CLI, but)
