Problems installing AEproject

Hey i’ve been struggling to install AEproject for a while. ive been following other threads and none have helped solved my issues. I keep getting errors when i run npm install aeproject.

I tried installing it globally i had errors.
I created an environment with python2.7 and Nodejs version 13.0 but still getting an issue, Something related to an argon library. is Nodejs v9.5.0 a requirement?
I use windows 10. Please help will be appreciated



@Emmanuel Hey, if the issue is with the argon library, I guess that the node version will not help. However, you can try with node version 9.5.0.

Did you check this article?

It will be helpful if you can also share the error.



This is the actual error i get.

i tried installing the windows build tools, had no positive effect

Is this an issue with the .NET framework version?

@MartinG I’m still waiting for a reply

Hey, @ Emmanuel,

Sorry for the late response on that!
Could you confirm you are using the latest version of AEproject?

In addition as @MartinG proposed, it might be better if you are using node version @9.5.0


Hi @Emmanuel
do you have any Visual Studio installed on your machine? if there is/are which version is it?
