This is how I solved it, You can follow step by step here:
Download the latest 64-bit MSI version of MongoDB for Windows.
Run the installer (.msi file)
Add it to your PATH of environment variables. it Should be from:
now Create a “\data\db” folder in C:/ which is used by mongodb to store all data. You should have this folder:

Type in the new command prompt
