NPM Install - Failed _Windows

Hi All, I’ve tried going to many posts to read and figure out this seemingly common issue.

I’ve install nodemon globally, I’ve check node version and its ~v16 or so.

Everytime I run npm install it start, then throws errors (see below) and then deleted node_modules folder.
Please any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks, I did try that but unfortunately had no success

Hi @Alan_Brower, welcome to the community.
Can you please delete the node_modules folder and package-lock.json and run the npm install command after that?

In case you have any doubts, please feel free to reach out to us.

Thanks and Regards.

Thank you.

I ended up installing VisualStudio Build Tools as well as running npm i node-gyp.

All seems to work so far. Will update if anything else occurs.

Thanks again
