Easy steps to installing Node, NPM, TypeScript, and Bower in Windows


1.  https://chocolatey.org/ to install The package manager for Windows – click “Install Chocolatey Now” button.

2. Copy the cmd.exe or PowerShell.exe command line as applicable (screenshot from install link below).  Note: I don't have them available here as they are likely to be updated.

    


3. After installation is complete, exit and launch command prompt (CMD.EXE) as administrator and execute the command c:/> choco install nodejs.install as shown in image below:

    

4. Exit the command window and re-launch the command window; you can now execute the following commands to install typescript and bower
