Windows Terminal Preview

June 22, 2019 | System Administration | No Comments


Well, Microsoft released a preview version of its new “Windows Terminal” It’s available in the Windows Store. I’ve been looking forward to checking it out since it was announced. The slow march of Windows conversion to Linux, but they wont call it that.

But, alas. The laptop from which I am typing this is, unfortunately, not sufficient for its install. Being, apparently, behind on updates. Which are now downloading.

So long as this antiquated hardware doesn’t overhead and die, as it is prone to do. Ill get to check out the Terminal tomorrow. I’m crossing my fingers…

Hopefully, this survives long enough to update.


bcrypt requires both python > 2.6 < 3.0 and the Microsoft C++ build tools.If Python 3+ is in your path you will need to specify the path to python 2

npm config set python C:\Python27\python.exe

For the Microsoft C++ build tools you will have to install Visual Studio Express. If you have Visual Studio Express 2010 installed you should be able to install bcrypt with npm fine, however if you have a later version or download the current (2013) than you need to specify the version in the npm install command.

npm install bcrypt –msvs_version=2013
