    How to Fix start execute command ‘curl failed issues with Amazon Windows EC2 server?


    Tag Window; HVR 5.5





    The client was running Windows instance and received this error.  I am getting error while refreshing tables from Oracle to Amazon Redshift in an Amazon EC2 Windows server. Can you please help on this error message:

    AWS credential handling, when using an AWS Role, depends on external tool “curl” when using IAM/EC2 instance roles.

    You should

    – make sure “curl.exe” is in your path, or is in one of those paths shown in the message you received. The recommended Windows download for curl can be found at


    – not use instance roles, and instead use the AWS key/secret. (Even if you didn’t specify a “role=xxxx” in HVR, if you didn’t provide any other credentials, it might try to fetch default role of EC2 instance)
