Unpack archive to folder of your choice (we will go with Downloads in this guide).
Press Win+R, enter cmd in opened window, press Enter. This will open windows Terminal.
In Terminal we need to navigate to path where your vegawallet.exe is placed after unarchiving (Downloads in our case) and run it, to do so enter next commands in Terminal:

cd Downloads

You will see output like this:

Next we generate new wallet with name “NodesGuru”:

vegawallet genkey -n "NodesGuru"

When entered, you will be promted to enter your password for new wallet:

Write down your public and private keys.

For your comfort, pubkey can be aliased with custom name, f.e. “NodesGuruKey”:

vegawallet meta --metas="name:NodesGurukey" --name="NodesGuru" --pubkey="здесь ваш паблик ключ из предыдущего шага"

Next we connect to test nodes:

vegawallet service init

And start Vega Console interface:

vegawallet service run -p

Let’s add our wallet we just created (follow arrow on screen):

2. Setting up console, add test tokens

If you succeeded in previous step, you will have some test tokens on MetaMask (in our example 1 Ropsten ETH and 10 tBTC).
We will need to deposit tBTC to Vega Console Account. Enter 10 in the field above Deposit button and click increase approved amount, confirm in MetaMask:

Once limit increased, press Deposit to transfer 10 tBTC from MetaMask to Vega:
