Set node version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using Visual 2017 for my typescript developments. I have two versions of Node installed on my PC:

    1. Node V4 in folder : C:\Program Files\nodejs
    2. Node V8 in folder : C:\Program Files\nodejs_V8\node-v8.9.3-win-x64

    I try to swtich from one to the other through Option / Tools / Web Package Management but even when I select folder "C:\Program Files\nodejs_V8\node-v8.9.3-win-x64" at the top of the list it is always Node V4 that is running. I would like to know how I can select Node v8 ?

  • Hi JMA_29,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to your description, it seems your issue is about the Node.js tools for Visual Studio. Since our forum is to discuss the VS IDE, please redirect to this appropriate forum: https://github.com/Microsoft/nodejstools/issues to start a new issue for a better support, thank you for your understanding.

    I am not sure that we keep the different Node.js versions in VS, and research around and it seems when we upgrade the Node.js version and we need to install into the default path: C:\Program Files\nodejs per this.

    Best regards,
