Install fails in Windows

Microsoft Windows [版本 10.0.18362.476]
node v10.16.3
Python 2.7.17 (v2.7.17:c2f86d86e6, Oct 19 2019, 21:01:17) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Visual Studio 2017

Use the above software version, and configure the environment variables according to the official website. But I made an error installing the server directory.

Details are as follows:

D:\workspace\工作\mediasoup-demo\server\node_modules\clang-tools-prebuilt\install.js:24
if (!platforms[platform]) throw new Error('Unknown platform: ' + platform)
                          ^

Please get mediasoup v3 branch (without the demo I mean), ensure you satisfy requirements [*] and run “npm install”.

[*] https://mediasoup.org/documentation/v3/mediasoup/installation/#windows

Thanks for the answer.

Yes, I have reinstalled all the software and configured it according to the standard of [*]. However, my installation in a new project (only executed npm init) still reported an error.

At the same time, there is a problem. I didn’t find the MSBuild.exe application under the C:, so I used the application in VS 2017. I don’t know if it was caused by this problem.The specific contents are as follows:

What’s the error now? MSBuild.exe should be in the Vistual Studio's install path which kind like that C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin, otherwise it’s maybe some Vistual Studio's components not installed.

It’s the same error as the first one above:

And Bin folder and executable MSBuild.exe application are not found in C:

I didn’t install it by default. I installed VS on disk D:.

(I want to be clearer and more intuitive, so use pictures)

Heyo,

I’m also experiencing this same error
OS: Windows 10 Version 1809
Node: v12.16.1
Python: 2.7.15
Visual Studio 2019

I’ve also set the Enviornment Variable and added MSBuild to my path. I found it in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Enterprise\MSBuild\Current\Bin

The full install output is:

Does anyone fixed this issue? I got error below:

There are some issues installing mediasoup in Windows due to bugs in GYP:

We’ll address all these issues when we migrate from GYP to CMake, but this will take some time. Try to use mediasoup in Linux/OSX (or in Docker) for now.

I also encountered with this problem. I did some fix with my fork here: https://github.com/GraphCeppelin/mediasoup

Works as temporary solution until it will be fixed.
To install: npm install git+https://github.com/GraphCeppelin/mediasoup.git
It requires VS 2019 (vs142 build toolset). So you can download community version.
