How do I get Hadoop to run on Windows? Every stackoverflow article, and even the documentation at Hadoop is years old and out of date, and does not work, something has changed and the documentation is out of sync – very badly so.

I created a windows env var HADOOP_HOME = C:hadoop and put hadoop.dll and winutils.exe in %HADOOP_HOME%bin, and still nothing works.

Is there anyone that has done this within the last month, and can please share the steps you took?

Pointing me to any documentation that can be found with a search engine search, or search in stackoverflow has already been attempted.
