Some ideas, thanks for your time


I don’t read Spanish, but I am sure you are having the same error as we were in this post. Since you are running windows I would install Visual Studio community with the C++ build tools. Then you will be able to build the npm bcrypt package. Details are in the post linked below. Hope that helps.


¡ Thanks !
I read all post and I find the comand npm install --global --production windows-build-tools and worked for me!.

Again thanks for your time and your advise



I am getting this error on Meteor

Note: you are using a pure-JavaScript implementation of bcrypt.
While this implementation will work correctly, it is known to be
approximately three times slower than the native implementation.
In order to use the native implementation instead, run

meteor npm install --save bcrypt

in the root directory of your application.

Any Idea !..


I ran that but nothing… still having the same issue.


Does bcrypt appear in your package.json file correctly, like this?

If so, you might want to try, (in a backup copy :sweat:), what I do :

rm -fr node_modules;
rm -fr .meteor/local;
rm -f .meteor/versions;
meteor npm install

If there are any pernicious interactions between packages, that outta clear’m out.


well… no… bcrypt does not appear on any package.json !!!


It should!

This installs but isn’t permanent

meteor npm install        bcrypt;

This is supposed to install, and add bcrypt to your package.json

meteor npm install --save bcrypt;


ok, I found some post for that issue, all saying the same>>
