Quick note. Latest Solana Cli cannot be installed on Windows

I'm trying to install Solana cli on my Windows 11 (manual).

In the section of Windows, the doc gives this command to install solana cli.

C:\solana-install-tmp\solana-install-init.exe v1.10.8
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

However, v1.10.8 cannot be installed, this should be because the latest release Testnet - v1.10.8 release does not include Windows binary.

I used the latest released version of mainnet v1.9.16.

In the future, the same issue will exists with different versions if Solana team does not provide windows binaries for Testnet releases.

It may help people using Solana cli on windows. Good luck.
