I have a problem starting a node.js server. The server app was tested on another system and worked perfectly.
The error log says that something is wrong with the node-api@ but I was not able to find any solution.

Two things you can try here:
node -v. If they're different, look to upgrade (or indeed downgrade) your installation.
node_modulesdirectory from the project root on your current computer, then run an
npm installto ensure that the binaries that were compiled are compatible with your operating system.
