I am trying to install hadoop based on below link :

However, on trying to build hadoop from source I get below error :

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal 
org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-maven-plugins:2.7.3:protoc (compile-protoc) on 
project hadoop-common: org.apache.maven.plugin.MojoExecutionException: 
'protoc --version' did not return a version -> [Help 1]

But on checking protocol buffer version I get below error :

C:\hds\hadoop-2.7.3-src>protoc -version 'protoc' is not recognized as an 
internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I have extracted "Protocol Buffer" in C:\protobuf-master and set 
environment PATH to C:\protobuf-master

Observation : I do not see protoc.exe or any BIN folder in 

   1. Do I need to build "Protocol Buffer" for use in windows?
   2. I could not find any pre-built "Protocol Buffer"at

I am using windows 10, 64 bit system. trying to build hadoop eventually to 
use Spark. please help.
