We release ia32 binaries for Cypress. Not seeing why this is incompatible. Can you try downloading from npm and see if it makes any difference?

Have you ever been able to install Cypress before?

@qasachin unfortunately this appears to be an issue on your end with your terminal. I'm not sure if you don't have node installed or if your command line is messed up, but this isn't a problem with Cypress itself.

I would recommend you go over to the node docs and learn how to setup a node project and install dependencies since that appears to be what the problem is.

We release 32bit binaries for Windows so I'm not sure why you can't use the binary from the direct download. More information is needed on your system.

Hello brian,

the npm installed the latest cypress (3.1.5) on my windows 7 32 bit system.

However, if I run the cypress open command from the .bin folder, I get the following error:

It looks like this is your first time using Cypress: 3.1.5
 x  Verifying Cypress can run C:\Users\lenovo\AppData\Local\Cypress\Cache\3.1.5\
Cypress
   → Cypress Version: 3.1.5
Cypress failed to start.
This is usually caused by a missing library or dependency.
The error below should indicate which dependency is missing.

If you are using Docker, we provide containers with all required dependencies in
stalled.

spawn UNKNOWN

Platform: win32 (6.1.7600)
Cypress Version: 3.1.5

So, I tried installing the dependency mentioned in "required-dependencies" section, but in vain. Please see below:

Hey @ShreeshailG, where are you running the cypress open command from? Is it in a plain terminal (cmd) window or from a terminal within your IDE program? I've read that running from the IDE terminal may cause this issue.

We have fixed this by also building for Windows 32-bit.

The code for this is done in cypress-io/cypress#3877, but has yet to be released.
We'll update this issue and reference the changelog when it's released.
