Install Rust Diesel in Windows 10 and Fix Issue

Installing Diesel CLI in Windows 10 can be troublesome sometimes. When I did execute this command “cargo install diesel_cli –no-default-features –features postgres” and receive error message:

note: Non-UTF-8 output: LINK : fatal error LNK1181:error: linking with `link.exe` failed: exit code: 1181

I have tried to debug it with the various approach by:

So, I did reset my Windows 10 language and downloaded the gigantic Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 with “VC++ 2015.3 v14.00 (v140) toolset for desktop”. I did re-install rust with the hope it will solve the issue.

None of the above is works until I found someone wrote an article on how to install Diesel in Windows 10 and enable it’s CLI with the help of setup the local variable PATH.
