I'm working on drupal in Windows environment. Most drupal developers recommend to use Drush. I know it is a very useful command line tool for drupal development.
I downloaded the Drush installer for Windows and have installed it, but I don't know how to use it and how it works together with drupal.
The main problem is that when I launched the drush command line windows and then I was stuck with what I should do next. I'm looking for how can I connect to my local site ( D:\xampp\htdocs\mysite ) via drush and I just want to play around the site.
My site stopped working and got the error from here. I was googling for the error, but no luck.
I think Drush could help me for this.
What is a good start point to study Drush?
Most documentation describe Drush on linux. I'm not familiar with linux, ssh, PowerShell, minsw, msysgit, cygwin etc.
I checked the FAQ and Resources on the site drush.ws Some of videos and screencasts are listed for older versions.
I also found this, but I'm not sure Step by Step is needed when I used Executable Installer. Will the installer make me configured everything for ready-to-use? The installation guide here is too general. I'm not sure I need MsysGit.
This and that mention about Gnuwin32. I chose it to install during setup.
I have no much time to follow all the links and read them all on the internet. I could not even download and steaming large videos because I'm working along with slow connection speed.
Thus, I'm just looking for a short-to-the-point reference or tutorial to configure Drush on Windows 7 and connect to my site, which will save me time.
