Building Node.js on Windows

With the installation of Python 2.7.11 on Windows the first requirement for building Node.js on Windows is checked.

I started with a basic Windows 8Pro version...

The next steps are:

With 8GB less space and a system restart - let's go on and build for x64 architecture:

.\vcbuild.bat nosign x64
...
node.vcxproj -> C:\Users\...\node\Release\node.exe

Finally we check the result!

.\Release\node.exe
> console.log('Hello Node');
Hello Node
> .exit

Or in a single command:

.\Release\node.exe -e "console.log('Hello ', process.arch);"
Hello x64
