Install nodeBB on Windows Server

General Discussion
  • #1

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to install nodeBB on a Windows Home Server 2011.
    My Docu source:
    I downloaded and installed all installation packages. First surprise was a error message at step:

    Install dependencies:
    npm install

    Couldn't find vcbuild.exe.

    Sure it isn't installed. So I did that with the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK (Software Development Kit) 2.0 (x86)
    Tryed again. No sucess. Ok, read during debugging something about env. path... set the path.
    Wohoo, one step forward.
    D' oh. next error!
    So and this is the part where you coming into the game. I have no Idea how to solve this problem.

    Thanks for your hint. I read it before. This discribes my first problem.
    I solved it by my own. Now I have a new problem.
    Your installation went fine, after installing VS 2012? What about VCBuild.exe?
    This exe has a new name under VS 2012...No ploblems with that?

  • GNU/Linux

    what version of node do you have installed?

  • #5

    Hi Julian,

    dowloaded today. So it's the latest version: v0.10.35.
    Update: x64! Could be usefull to know...

  • Gamers

    I wrote Visual Studio 2013 no 2012.
    I haven't problem with this.

  • #7

    OK, I'll try it with VS2013 Express.
    Maybe it's something with x86 / x64 incompability.

  • #8

    @Hectopascal I had issues when i first installed, I had to find some visual studio thing that I had to install but I cannot remember what it is. I will check when i go home.

    @Scuzz Thank you for your support. Nice to know that at least one want's to help.

    -> Microsoft .NET Framework SDK (Software Development Kit) 2.0 (x86) uninstalled
    -> Node (x86) uninstalled
    -> Node (x64) reinstalled
    -> VisualStudio 2013 Express installed

    => Forum runs! 😉

    @julian It would be usefull to write this info to:

  • #10

    I dont have visual studio installed. So i think i may have installed something else. I have a lot of Microsoft visual C++ redistributable installed. 2008, 2010 and 2012. I think i can remember installing one of those to get it working. It could even be the 2005 version.

    I hope that helps, but it looks like you have it working 🙂
