"If your Windows 10 build is 17063, or later, cUrl is included by default. All you need to do is run Command Prompt with administrative rights and you can use cUrl . The Curl.exe is located at C:\Windows\System32. If you want to be able to use cUrl from anywhere, consider adding it to Path Environment Variables."
