Npm install couchbase fails on windows


#1

Something in couchbase 2.3.2 broke installation on windows. Version 2.3.0 installs fine, but 2.3.2 fails during the prebuild --install script.

$ npm install couchbase

couchbase@2.3.2 install C:\dev\node_modules\couchbase
prebuild --install

Hey @divinebovine,

Could you tell me what Windows version you are using, and whether you have the required Visual Studio version installed for your Node.js version?

Cheers, Brett

Hi! I’v got same problem.

I tried install couchbase SDK 2.3.2 on Windows 10 Ent with VS 2015 Ent. Node.js v6.10.2.

Workaround for this case - install prev version of SDK like that https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/4.5/sdk/nodejs/start-using-sdk.html#story-h2-6
it’s works but newest build will better )

Hey @Brett19,

I’m running windows 10 enterprise, version 1607 build 14393.693 and I have Visual Studio 2015 Professional and Visual Studio 2017 Professional installed.

Thanks,
Daniel
