I used npm install web3 which would install (as of now) v1.0.0-beta.41

But it gave me the following error:

E:\sheep\node_modules\sha3>if not defined npm_config_node_gyp (node "C:\Program Files\nodejs\node_modules\npm\node_modules\npm-lifecycle\node-gyp-bin\\..\..\node_modules\node-gyp\bin\node-gyp.js" rebuild )  else (node "C:\Program Files\nodejs\node_modules\npm\node_modules\node-gyp\bin\node-gyp.js" rebuild )

. Then I added a reg key in regedit("Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSBuild\4.0") as "VCTargetsPath" : "$(MSBuildExtensionsPath32)\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V140" But it is still not working i.e., it gives the same error as mentioned.

I can install web3@0.20.7, but i want latest version as some of the functions from 0.20.7 has been removed/rearranged in v1.0.0 All I need is that nodejs should not complain when i do require('web3').

I want to know that how to install web3 package with dependencies. Also how to tell E:\node_modules\scrypt\build\scrypt_wrapper.vcxproj (there is no scrypt folder inside node_modules when i checked) to use V140 or any installed platformSetTools.

I have following folders in C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0

  • V120
  • V140

Also is it possible to merge web3 (with dependencies) installed on someone else's system into mine?

Update: I have following software installed in current pc:

  • Visual studio 2015

  • Microsoft .NET Framework (4.5 Multi targeting pack(MTP), 4.5 sdk, 4.5.1 MTP, 4.5.1 MTP (ENU), 4.5.1 SDK, 4.5.2 SDK, 4.5.2 MTP, 4.5.2 MTP ENU, 4.6 SDK, 4.6 Targeting Pack, 4.6 TP ENU, 4.6.1 SDK, 4.6.1 TP, 4.6.1 TP ENU, 4.7 SDK, 4.7 TP, 4.7 TP ENU)

  • Microsoft Visual C++ (2008,2012,2013,2017)

Also I can npm install web3 in a windows 7 (which also has visual studio 2015) and it executes/installs with no errors. This is output after attempting to install windows-build-tools and web3 packages.

    try npm install --production windows-build-tools from your local directory(not globally), then try npm install web3. – Monarth Sarvaiya Feb 8 at 12:16

Not sure (because you didn't provide full error logs), but I think the problem is with some build-tools, installing it will solve your problem.

npm install -g windows-build-tools

Note: Make sure that you install windows-build-tools globally.

  1. uninstall / reinstall node (deleted all related folders in local directories too, including in Roaming)
  2. in POWERSHELL as Administrator: npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
  3. npm install --save --no-optional web3.

Hope this works for you.
