To check the integrity, use Get-FileHash commandlet on PowerShell.

PS> Get-FileHash td-agent-bit-1.4.4-win32.exe

Installing from ZIP archive

Download a ZIP archive from the download page. There are installers for 32-bit and 64-bit environments, so choose one suitable for your environment.

Then you need to expand the ZIP archive. You can do this by clicking "Extract All" on Explorer, or if you're using PowerShell, you can use Expand-Archive commandlet.

PS> Expand-Archive td-agent-bit-1.4.4-win64.zip

The ZIP package contains the following set of files.

td-agent-bit
├── bin
│ ├── fluent-bit.dll
│ └── fluent-bit.exe
├── conf
│ ├── fluent-bit.conf
│ ├── parsers.conf
│ └── plugins.conf
└── include
│ ├── flb_api.h
│ ├── ...
│ └── flb_worker.h
└── fluent-bit.h

Now, launch cmd.exe or PowerShell on your machine, and execute fluent-bit.exe as follows.

PS> .\bin\fluent-bit.exe -i dummy -o stdout

If you see the following output, it's working fine!

PS> .\bin\fluent-bit.exe -i dummy -o stdout
