had this same problem, but when I tried to run the windows-build-tools, it just gost stucked. Tried a few times and instead of trying to do the installation via Chocolatey, I just ignored it (since it showed me that python 2.7 was installed anyway). And it finally worked! Thank you!

Also, if you get a warning about scripts after checking for truffle version, follow the link in the message about Execution Polices and run:

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process

then try truffle version and it should work!

The node-gyp docs state that "node-gyp requires that you have installed a compatible version of Python, one of: v3.6, v3.7, v3.8, or v3.9.", and you seem to have 3.8, so we can hope thats not the problem

Do not worry about the warnings. For the errors, try this:

  • Run npm install --global windows-build-tools
  • Install node-gyp: npm install -g node-gyp
  • Clear npm cache: npm cache clear --force
  • Finally hit npm i -g truffle

Hope it helps!

By the way, Im running Windows 10, with Node 16.14.0 and npm 8.3.1

It doesn't work with nodeJS v17 and v18 now. Try v14 or v16. I still get warning messages, but it works.
