Howto install Volatility (RAM / Memory Forensic Framework) in Windows

Submitted by rex on Sun, 02/28/2010 - 18:14

1. Download Python

http://www.python.org/download/

I have installed Python 2.6.4 in Windows 7, 64 Bit Edition.

Open a windows shell and add Python to your Windows path with

PATH=%PATH%;C:\Python26

If you installed Python somewhere else change 'C:\Python26' with your path.

2. Download Volatility Framework

https://www.volatilesystems.com/volatility/1.3/Volatility-1.3_Beta.zip

and extract it to d:\Forensic\Tools\Volatility

3. Test Volatility


d:\Forensic\tools\Volatility>python volatility pslist -f d:\Forensic data\ramdump2.dd
