Is it possible to get this working on windows?


I already have a few apps running on my windows environment that use mongodb and node and have had no problems but when i try and start this i get the following error:

C:\wekan\bundle>node main.js
[Error: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.
js-bson: Failed to load c++ bson extension, using pure JS version

I have the exact same error. I was able to package the app using demeteorizer and wanted to deploy on the server I get this error… Any help is appreciated


Hi, I stumbled upon the this…Try the solution below and let me know if it worked… I don’t have access to my deployment server yet


I managed to get this working by following the instructions given in above SO post. Now able to host Wekan on windows 2012 server


Delete the folder containing npm-bcrypt on the deployment server inside your project folder (…programs\server\npm).

On the deployment server, run:

npm install bcrypt
And it will re-install bcrypt inside the …programs\server\node_modules which should solve that error for you. In addition, you will need Python >2.5 and <3.0 to properly handle fibers. If you install the latest version it likely won’t work properly.


Thanks Aditya, I will give it a go.


I’d like to get a Wekan site running / hosted on a windows server. I am unfamiliar with what it takes to get that done. Do I first have to follow the steps to Install from Source on Windows to basically get a dev environment up and running on a separate windows box, build and then deploy to the server (IIS web server) somehow? Are there any steps outlined to achieve this somewhere I haven’t yet found?
