Cannot install Ionic on Windows 7


#1

I am trying to install Ionic on Windows 7 machine.

  • First, installed NodeJS 6.1.0, It went fine
  • Then, ran npm install -g cordova, Went fine
  • Then, ran npm install -g ionic, Got error related to Python. Installed Python 2.7
  • Again, ran npm install -g ionic, Got error related to Microsoft .Net Framework 2 SDK.
  • Updated npm to 3.8.9, Still getting error related to Microsoft .Net Framework 2 SDK.

Are Python and Microsoft .Net SDK actually required? Nowhere I could find about this in the installation guides.

Any help would be appreciated.
