    Access the nvm-windows repository, and on the right side, where it says Releases, click on the one that appears, which should be the last.

    I think I have done a terrible mistake, I was looking for a Node Version Manager (for Windows) to use without elevated terminal and find this one : https://github.com/jchip/nvm but also having this one : https://github.com/coreybutler/nvm-windows installed
  • Why You Should Use NVM (Node Version Manager) and How to Install It

    If you happen to use Windows you can install it at NVM for windows which is developed by Corey Butler, download the nvm-setup.zip file.

    Now, instead of installing node.js from the official website, we should install the Node Version Manager and download node versions from there. In case you already have node installed this should not be a major problem as NVM will overwrite any node-related environment variables and symlinks, but I'd recommend you to uninstall it anyway as this process will render the current installation completely useless. Go to the NVM for windows project page and download the latest available version's nvm-setup.zip from the releases page. Note that this is not the same as the UNIX-based NVM project, although it is functionally equivalent. "Similar, not identical" as the project itself discloses. Unzip the folder's contents and run nvm-setup.exe. You'll be prompted to agree with the project's terms of use (currently it's the MIT License), then the installer will ask where to install nvm, which will also be the same location as the downloaded node versions and their globally-enabled packages; the roaming app data folder under your current user should be perfectly fine. However, you'll then be prompted to indicate where to keep the node.js symlink, and (at least in versions up to 1.1.8) there's a catch: you cannot keep the symlink under a path which contains whitespaces, and unfortunately the default installation path (currently C:\Program Files\nodejs) steps right into this trap.

    That link is only for Mac and Linux tho, here's an alternative if you're using windows. It's not exactly the same but gets the job done very well
  • Node Version Manager (nvm) for Windows
    5 projects | dev.to | 7 Aug 2021
    tl;dr Similar (not identical) to nvm, but for Windows. Has an installer. Download Now! This has always been a node version manager, not an io.js manager, so there is no back-support for io.js. However, node 4+ is supported. Remember when running nvm install or nvm use, you must have Windows administrative rights (to create symlinks).

    If you want to do node development on Windows, I would recommend at minimum nvm-windows, Windows Terminal and PowerShell 7+. Once you get past knowing your way around PowerShell instead of bash you should be mostly fine.

    prev to that it was nvm-windows. It's not using node to manage node runtimes, it's an executable written in go.

    Install native software as much as you can, for example NVM for Windows is faster than developing on WSL.

    NVM definitely doesn't require admin rights. Are you talking about nvm-windows instead? Note that the two are entirely separate projects.

    I also helped test out the project in Node 15: We got a really neat PR that adds Node 15 support from Mo, another (awesome) contributor/maintainer (who like me, shares a love of public transit). It also gave me a chance to finally set up NVM (... for Windows) which surprisingly just worked off the bat.
