`monero-wallet-cli.exe --generate-from-device MoneroWallet --subaddress-lookahead 3:200` (Win 7 + 8)

- The CLI will, after executing aforementioned command, prompt your for a password. Make sure to set a strong password and confirm it thereafter.
- The Ledger will ask whether you want to export the private view key or not. First and foremost, your funds cannot be compromised with merely the private view key. Exporting the private view key enables the client (on the computer - Monero v0.12.2.0) to scan blocks looking for transactions that belong to your wallet / address. If this option is not utilized, the device (Ledger) will scan blocks, which will be significantly slower. There is, however, one caveat. That is, if your system gets compromised, the adversary will potentially be able to compromise your private view key as well, which is detrimental to privacy. This is virtually impossible when the private view key is not exported.
- You may have to hit confirm twice before it proceeds.
- Your Ledger Monero wallet will now be generated. Note that this may take up to 5-10 minutes. Furthermore, there will be no immediate feedback in the CLI nor on the Ledger.
- `monero-wallet-cli` will start refreshing. Wait until it has fully refreshed.
Congratulations, you can now use your Ledger Monero wallet in conjunction with the CLI.
### Mac OS X
- You need to install the Ledger Monero app and configure your system. Instructions can be found [here](https://github.com/LedgerHQ/blue-app-monero/blob/master/doc/user/bolos-app-monero.pdf) (sections 3.1.1 and 3.2.2 in particular). In addition, make sure to set the network to `Mainnet`
- Note that the instructions for system configuration (section 3.2.2) on Mac OS X are quite elaborate and can be perceived as slightly convoluted. Fortunately, tficharmers has created a guide [here](https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/8438/how-do-i-make-my-macos-detect-my-ledger-nano-s-when-plugged-in) that you can use for assistance.
- Either your daemon (`monerod`) should be running and preferably be fully synced or you should connect to a remote node.
- Use Finder to browse to the directory / folder `monero-wallet-cli` (CLI v0.12.2.0) is located.
- Go to your desktop.
- Open a new terminal (if don't know how to open a terminal, see [here](https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/256263)).
- Drag `monero-wallet-cli` in the terminal. It should add the full path to the terminal. Do not hit enter.
`--generate-from-device <new-wallet-name> --subaddress-lookahead 3:200`
`--generate-from-device MoneroWallet --subaddress-lookahead 3:200`
Note that aforementioned text will be appended to the path of `monero-wallet-cli`. Thus, before you hit enter, your terminal should look like:
`/full/path/to/monero-wallet-cli --generate-from-device <new-wallet-name> --subaddress-lookahead 3:200`
