Can't Start MMS - Could not locate the bindings file

Post by jmac_the_man »

Trying to start the program on Windows 10 from the command line. Got the below error message.

Do I need to install my own copy of Node, or does this come with it?

Thanks
Using node.js v8.11.3
Caught exception: Error: Could not locate the bindings file. Tried:

Super late reply, but yes. You need your own installation of Node.js >8, as well as Node Package Manager, and I believe Python needs to be installed for one or two of the dependencies. Installation instructions are on the github page.
