If you don't have a mac but want to use homebrew.

I don't have a Mac and I don't know about you, but I didn't want to have to install and languages manually, in this case mongo. Thankfully I didn't have to and you don't have to ether. You can use scoop. To install scoop open Command Prompt. Type powershell to open PowerShell from inside Command Prompt which is built into Windows Vista up:

powershell

or alternatively you can open up Power Shell directly by going to Start -> run -> Open: powershell (As Steven Parker pointed out). Then:

$ iex (new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('https://get.scoop.sh')

Then install mongo, etc. like:

scoop install mongodb

You can't run iex in a Command Prompt window.

You can only do this in Windows PowerShell (start -> run -> Open: powershell).
