windows 10

node.js 12.13.1

python 3.8

Hello, I’m trying to download expo then I typed “npm install -g expo-cli”

At the end I always get the answer above.

I uninstalled node.js and got it back, updated python.

Used PowerShell as an administrator instead of cmd
Tried with and without my antivirus on during the process

Tried “npm install --global --production windows-build-tools” after getting python updated

I’ve checked every single post related to this problem and nothing worked for me.

It seems that Windows users are having trouble installing/upgrading expo-cli at the moment. Please see this post:
