angular.js tutorial – npm install problems

Running command:

npm install -g karma protractor bower http-server

on Windows 8.1 64bit was a bit painfull.

What finally worked was:

  1. install python 2.7 (3.x did not work)
  2. install Visual Studio 2015 and make sure C++ Compiler is installed

The last part I learned the hard way. For this error:

Could not load the Visual C++ component "VCBuild.exe"

Installation of .NET Framework did not helped. After installing Visual Studio 2015 Comunnity I got:

TRK0005: Failed to locate: "CL.exe"

Only reinstall with more options checked – worked.
