[FIXED] npm is properly installed but node version is not coming up on widows 10


when i checked for node version, i got the response bellow

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> node -v

but checking for npm version, it comes up well.

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> npm -v
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>

npm -v gives 8.5.0

But node -v give syntax results as shown above

is the node properly installed??

how do I show the node version on the code??

I have tried to use the node -v

I have also tried to correct the PATH in environment variables,

I have used node repair, I have uninstall and reinstall but yet I still can’t see the node version, but the npm version is coming up.

how can the npm version show up but the node version doesn’t show?


You are in the system32 folder and running as an admin user, and node is a Windows executable. You probably want to be running the ‘nodejs command prompt’ instead of cmd.exe.
