Install Node.js on Windows 7

Updated: Nov 5, 2020



This post walks through a Node.js install on Windows 7 and tests that node and npm work. It installs v13.14.0 LTS.


It seems that v13.14.0 LTS is the last installer that works on Window 7. I get this error when I try to install v14.0.0 (node-v14.0.0-x64.msi from [link]):



This post also includes a link to the License Agreement so people can review it before installing. The install takes about 30 secs and uses 86 MB.
