Installing node.js on Windows
Node.js provides installers for all platforms and here we will see the installation on Windows. I have latest Windows 8.1 installed on my machine so steps mentioned are meant for Windows 8.1 but the process should be same for the rest of Windows distributions.
Go to http://nodejs.org/
Clicking on big “Install” button will download the required installer for your machine as their website has already detected the platform capabilities. If you want to download installer for other platforms click on “Downloads” button or go to http://nodejs.org/download/
Start the installation. Accept terms & conditions then choose the installation directory(I would leave it default)
Look for node.js command prompt.
Run following command to know the node.js version
That’s it. Thanks for reading.
