2. Install core plugins
Gauge has a rich plugin repository. Language runners, IDEs, and reports are all plugins. Since Gauge is a first class command line tool, you only *need* one plugin to get your Gauge tests running. That is your language runner plugin.
The Windows installer allows you to select the language plugin(s) as part of the the installation process. Check the box(es) you want to install. You can select more than one language plugin to install.
Follow the remaining installation steps.
3. Test your installation
Check that all plugins are installed and are at the latest version by running this command.
> gauge -v
Gauge version: 0.2.1

This creates a template with a sample test specification. The example below shows how to execute test specifications in C#, but the same applies to all supported languages.
Now run the sample specification to see how Gauge works.
