Gyp error when trying whatsapp sample

I just cloned Urigos Whatsapp sample (, changed to the api folder and tried to install the packages with meteor npm install.

Then I got the following gyp error. I am on 64 Bit winows and node-gyp worked before.

Ionic2CLI-Meteor-WhatsApp\node_modules\sharp>if not defined npm_config_node_gyp (node "C:\Users\Marc\AppData\Local\.meteor\packages\me
teor-tool\1.4.2_3\\dev_bundle\lib\node_modules\npm\bin\node-gyp-bin\\..\..\node_modules\node-gyp\bin\node-gyp.js" rebuild )  else
(node "" rebuild )
ERROR: Intel Architecture 32-bit systems require manual installation - please see
gyp: Call to 'node -e "require('./binding').download_vips()"' returned exit status 1 while in binding.gyp. while trying to load binding.gyp

BTW npm install -g sharp works fine.

Hi. I have same problem. Do you found any solution? Only solution for me was to downgrade version of sharp to 0.11.4, but I changed app architecture recently and it doesn’t work for me anymore.
