Node.js Question

'gyp' filed with exit code: 1 when trying to install zookeeper on window using npm

I am try to install Zookeeper 3.4.5 on Windows 7 using npm 1.3.9. When I enter

npm install zookeeper

I get

raise ValueError('AddFileConfig: file "%s" not in project.' % path)
ValueError: AddFileConfig: file "." not in project.

As this has been a huge and annoying problem, that I have solved in many different (non-permanent ways), I FINALLY found the answer here:

Error installing node-gyp on ubuntu

Since you are on Windows, try using a previous version of Python (for me it was using 2.6) for Windows.
