### Running node.exe windows

Finally node.js is available as a windows binary without requiring Cygwin to be installed.

As of writing this post you can download the node.js binary 0.5.6. Currently npm does not work with node.js on windows. You need to download and use ryppi.py instead of npm. It works similar to npm but requires python. To setup node.js first set the PATH and NODE_PATH to the where you have copied node.exe.

             set PATH=%PATH%;c:\node             set NODE_PATH=c:\node

It is better to set these environment variables in the System Properties so that you don't have to set these variables every time. Follow the following steps to do that.
1. Right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Advanced system settings in the left side bar.
             python ryppi.py install socket.io express
