Use the composer fund command to find out more!

Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks Rajesh

The documentation states, right near the top, that you have to require phalcon devtools:

composer require phalcon/devtools

That creates a composer.json that tells composer what to install.

Once that's done, then you run composer install to install the libraries you previously required.

Then you can run phalcon - but you'll likely need to change some things as I think those instructions are for *nix systems, not Windows.

These codes are quite complicated for me.
