Setting up sqlite on GitHub - PLEASE HELP!

Hi All - extremely inexperienced coder here. I am trying to get SQLite set up on my computer and entering the following into Git Hub ($ automatically appears I am typing everything else then clicking enter):

$ downloads/

This produces the following no file directory result:

bash: downloads/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100/: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong? The path to the file is : C:\Users\myname\Downloads\\sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100

Help would be so appreciated. I’ve been spending hours on this and just want to continue already!

Thank you!

@byte2138560104, welcome to the forums!

Have you unzipped (extracted) the file yet? You shouldn’t be trying to navigate into a zipped file.

Also, once you have unzipped it you will need to use cd before the path name in order to change directories. Otherwise you will just get a message saying bash: sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100: Is a directory

How do I unzip the file? Not sure what that means… Like I said, very inexperienced here hah.

Thanks for reaching out.

ok I think I figured out how to extract it! After I extracted, I typed in:

cd downloads/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100/

and the result was this (yellow text): ~/downloads/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100/sqlite-tools-win32-x86-3310100

I then typed in winpt ./sqlite.exe and it said bash: winpt: command not found

Do you know what I did incorrect and should change? Thanks so much!

the command needs to be winpty not winpt
