using node-gyp building nodejs c++ module on windows
Python (v2.7.3 recommended, v3.x.x is not supported)
- Visual Studio 2010 Express, only need to install c++ tools
- For 64-bit builds of node and native modules you will also need the Windows 7 64-bit SDK If the install fails, try uninstalling any C++ 2010 x64&x86 Redistributable that you have installed first.
- If you get errors that the 64-bit compilers are not installed you may also need the compiler update for the Windows SDK 7.1
