I really want to use n8n for the business I am at. We have many things to get automated etc. I got n8n up and running on my Mac in an instant. However the IT department has given me a server with Windows Server 2016. They are reluctant to allow me run Linux in their environment.
Anyway my issue is with the bcrypt dependency. It doesn’t want to compile / install on that windows server. I have read up and tried numerous fixes now. I tried all the troubleshooting fixes at this link with no luck: https://docs.n8n.io/reference/troubleshooting.html#windows
Is there not an easy way for me to get n8n to use the bcryptjs module instead of bcrypt. Both modules have the same interface mapping (api) so n8n should still work?
Sorry not an experienced node developer. So maybe this is trivial for a node developer or maybe it is not?
I saw one article mention creating an alias for bcrypt to bcryptjs but the article didn’t explain how to do this. Would that be one line of code but in which file?
Your assistance or info would be very much appreciated.
