Can someone help me ? i dont know how to fix it, i got stuck for 6 hours looking for the answer. Please Help

Be sure to install all the required things before doing npm install:


Yep, i’ve already done that, but still it shows error
Node → v16.18.0
GNU Make → 3.81
python → 3.10.2

i already append the directory of make’s folder to path. But still it shows same errors

Kindly show the versions of all these from terminal to make sure, like node -v, make -v etc. Make sure to restart the terminal after you have added something to PATH.

Make sure to install PIP for python as well.

yeah, i always restart the terminal after added new directory to path

For the record, i’ve done all of these steps
1.install Node, Python, and PIP
2.install GNU make from MinGW (using link provided in [mediasoup :: Installation])
3.add C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin to path
4.i’ve tried use vcvars64.bat from VS2019 or VS2022 to run npm install

Oh, btw. which ‘make’ should i install ? Is it from MSYS or MinGW ?

From MSYS, looks all good to me. Which version of mediasoup you are installing? Can you try it with windows terminal application? Also remove node_modules and try again.

version 3 but i dont know the specific version of it (e.g : 3…) i just use ```
npm install mediasoup@3


okay, let me try it first

Here if i run it on powershell

CMD

CMD + VCVARS64.BAT

I see it now please do install these as well from under MSYS using MinGW manager:

First try with these:
msys-base
msys-bash
msys-core
msys-coreutils
msys-diffutils

And if shown some error then try installing these as well:
msys-dos2unix
msys-file
msys-findutils
msys-gawk
msys-grep
msys-gzip
msys-libint
msys-libiconv
msys-tar
msys-xz
msys-texinfo

But first confirm me whether you have pwd.exe inside MinGW/msys/1.0/bin?

i dont have it in my MinGW/msys/1.0/bin. Do i need to download it from the internet ?

Ok, no install it the same way you installed msys-make from MinGW application here:

Ok. :grin:

i’ve tried your suggestions .

First try with these:
msys-base
msys-bash
msys-core
msys-coreutils
msys-diffutils

It still shows errors but the errors is different

Looks like we are making progress. This time it is saying about not finding PIP. Can you try this command in terminal ‘python3 -m pip’?

Well, after i try commnad ‘python3 -m pip’ in terminal. it shows exaxtly as in here [ mediasoup :: Installation]

Ok and what does ‘python3’ outputs? If it shows error then you need to add python3 to environment variable with python3 installation path.
