Win 10; build tools error; msbuild.exe failed code: 1


#1

I repaired the msbuild.exe and then install python.msi in case that may have messed things up.

This part is in red:
C:\Users\ALERATOR\garlic\node_modules\bcrypt\build\bcrypt_lib.vcxproj(20,3): er
ror MSB4019: The imported project “C:\Microsoft.Cpp.Default.props” was not foun
d. Confirm that the path in the declaration is correct, and that the f
ile exists on disk.

The full thing:

C:\Users\ALERATOR\garlic>meteor npm install --save bcrypt

bcrypt@0.8.7 install C:\Users\ALERATOR\garlic\node_modules\bcrypt
node-gyp rebuild

#2

So I’ve gone and installed c++ compiler and that appears to have fixed the issue with bcrypt installed, although I’ve now also witnessed yellow text in terminal (warning aabout some data loss, something).
