I've been searching everywhere, but can't seem to find a solution. Is it possible to install Socket.io on Node.js on Windows 7?
If not, is there some sort of alternative, or do you know of any future Windows support?
Usually the Node.js package manager is used, however I can't find a way of installing that on Windows. http://npmjs.org/
I'm currently using Node.exe (not running it through Cygwin).
This is how I'd imagine it would be installed on Windows, if NPM worked:
npm install socket.io
Simply install Node.js and type
npm install socket.io into the Windows console and look in
I am confirming that npm install socket.io works perfectly with Node.js 0.6.10 on Windows 7 (remember to run cmd as Administrator).
For anyone who is having trouble getting Node.js and socket.io working on Windows...
There is the nodejs-win project on Google Code.
And here is a video that shows the basics of using it.
