This post summarizes the steps to install Zeppelin 0.7.3 in Windows environment.

Tools and Environment

  • GIT Bash
  • Command Prompt
  • Windows 10

Download Binary Package

Download the latest binary package from the following website:


In my case, I am saving the file to folder: F:\DataAnalytics

UnZip Binary Package

Open Git Bash, and change directory (cd) to the folder where you save the binary package and then unzip:

$ cd F:\DataAnalytics

fahao@Raymond-Alienware MINGW64 /f/DataAnalytics
$ tar -xvzf  zeppelin-0.7.3-bin-all.gz

After running the above commands, the package is unzip to folder: F:\DataAnalytics\zeppelin-0.7.3-bin-all

Run Zeppelin

Before starting Zeppelin, make sure JAVA_HOME environment variable is set.

JAVA_HOME environment variable

JAVA_HOME environment variable value should be your Java JRE path.


Start Zeppelin

Run the following command in Command Prompt (Remember to the path to your own Zeppelin folder):

cd /D F:\DataAnalytics\zeppelin-0.7.3-bin-all\bin


Wait until Zeppelin server is started:



In any of your browser, navigate to http://localhost:8080/

The UI should looks like the following screenshot:


Create Notebook

Create a simple note using markdown and then run it:



If you got this error when using Spark as interpreter, please refer to the following pages for details:



Basically, even you configure Spark interpreter not to use Hive, Zeppelin is still trying to locate winutil.exe through environment variable HADOOP_HOME.

Thus to resolve the problem, you need to install Hadoop in your local system and then add one environment variable:


After the environment variable is added, please restart the whole Zeppelin server and then you should be able to run Spark successfully.


You should also be able to run the tutorials provided as part of the installation:



If you encounter the following error:

org.apache.zeppelin.interpreter.InterpreterException: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

at org.apache.zeppelin.interpreter.remote.RemoteInterpreterManagedProcess.start(RemoteInterpreterManagedProcess.java:143) at org.apache.zeppelin.interpreter.remote.RemoteInterpreterProcess.reference(RemoteInterpreterProcess.java:73) at org.apache.zeppelin.interpreter.remote.RemoteInterpreter.open(RemoteInterpreter.java:265) at org.apache.zeppelin.interpreter.remote.RemoteInterpreter.getFormType(RemoteInterpreter.java:430) at org.apache.zeppelin.interpreter.LazyOpenInterpreter.getFormType(LazyOpenInterpreter.java:111) at org.apache.zeppelin.notebook.Paragraph.jobRun(Paragraph.java:387) at org.apache.zeppelin.scheduler.Job.run(Job.java:175) at org.apache.zeppelin.scheduler.RemoteScheduler$JobRunner.run(RemoteScheduler.java:329) at java.util.concurrent.Executors$RunnableAdapter.call(Executors.java:511) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:266) at java.util.concurrent.ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor$ScheduledFutureTask.access$201(ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor.java:180) at java.util.concurrent.ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor$ScheduledFutureTask.run(ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor.java:293) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:1149) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$Worker.run(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:624) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748)

It is probably caused by the same issue in this JIRA task if you have installed Spark locally:


To fix it, you can remove ‘SPARK_HOME’ environment variable and your Spark should still be able to run correctly if you run spark shell using full path of spark-shell.cmd.

I can get it work by using the following approach:

1) Create an IIS website (http://localhost/Test/) with one page index.html:

        <h1>Test iframe</h1>
        <iframe src="http://localhost:8080/#/notebook/2D7J63CN7" width="600px" height="400px" style="border:1px solid #000000"></iframe>

2) And then open the website in the browser: http://localhost/Test/

If you open with a file URL, then the content cannot be displayed due to security reasons:


When you publish your website, your Zeppelin site should also be deployed into a server that your user can access.

Hi Raymond Tang. I come back because I tried but I didn't succeded to embed a zeppelin notebook as an iframe in my website. I have something like that  

<div id="interactivForm">

                                <iframe id="MyInterpreter" src="http://localhost:8085/#/notebook/2DHDGTVNU"></iframe>
                           </div> in my website but it doesn't work. But I can access to http://localhost:8085/#/notebook/2DHDGTVNU without problem. Do you know how to do that?
Thank you.

You can use <iframe> html element to embed Zeppelin into your website.

This also means that your Zeppelin website (*:8080 by default) needs to be exposed to all your users (i.e. their networks).

Hi Raymond. Now I don't really want to do any authentification. I want only to give an opportunity to anonymous user to execute spark in my website using zeppelin. So do you know how to do that or do you have a tutorial where I can see how to do that step by step? Thank you very much.

You can embed Zeppelin into a website.

However you need to decide how to pass through user credentials from your website to Zeppelin website depends on the authentication type. 

The authentication part you can reference to the following website:


Based on my current understanding, I don't think currently you can directly implement the automatic logon without extending Zeppelin (but I might be wrong).

Hi everyone,

do you know if it is possible to embed Zeppelin Notebook in a webpage? Like as an iframe or another method? So that users can come and execute their own code? Do you think that is possible? Has someone an idea to do that? Thank you!
