This page assumes that you have installed [Wampserver](http://www.wampserver.com/en/ "Download wampserver") on your MS Windows computer. Start with downloading [Yii](http://www.yiiframework.com/download/ "Download Yii") and deploy the framework in your webroot/vhost (`C:\wamp\www\`). Open the Environment Variables window by going to: `Start -> My Computer (right click!) -> Advanced Tab -> Environment Variables -> Click Path in System variables -> Edit`.
In Windows 7, press the Win key and type "env". You should see a control panel section with a shortcut to "Edit the system environment variables". Select it and then click on "Environment Variables...".
Click on the variable called PATH and click "Edit...". Do not delete the paths already there! Separate each path with semicolons.
Now you have to add the following PATH:s in Windows: "`C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.8`" and "`C:\wamp\www\framework`". The former path should lead where your <i>php.exe</i> resides, and the latter where your <i>yiic.bat</i> resides. To do so, go to: `start -> My computer(right click!) -> Advanced Tab -> Environment Variables -> Click Path in System variables -> Edit`
After entering the paths, type `cmd` in your startmenus searchfield, and go to the webroot

After entering the paths, type `cmd` in your startmenus searchfield, and go to the webroot. You may have to restart the computer if this does not work for you so that Windows can register the new variables

`yiic webapp mywebsite`

Will generate a Yii skeleton for your web application inside the directory "mywebsite" in your WAMP webroot folder.
One reason that you should stand in your WAMP webroot when giving the yiic commands is that you don't have to specify where you want the web application generated.
