There seems to be a lot of similar issues to this when I search, but most revolve around not having Python or OCI environment variables set. I've been at this for 2 days now, with no luck.

Windows 7, 32-bit
GNU bash v3.1.0(1)
Node v0.10.29
NPM v1.4.14
Oracle InstantClient
Python 2.7.5
Visual Studio 2012 Express for Desktop

I set the following variables:

OCI_VERSION=12  <-- Tried (10,11 and 12)
PATH= ...<existing path>;C:\InstantClient\vc11;C:\InstantClient\

I set npm config set python C:\Python27

I confirmed the PYTHON environment variable was not set. (though I have tried setting it for previous attempts)

Here's what I get:

$ npm install oracle

> oracle@0.3.7 install c:\Sites\new\node_modules\oracle
> node-gyp rebuild

c:\Sites\new\node_modules\oracle>node "c:\Program Files\nodejs\node_modules\npm\bin\node-gyp-bin\\..\..\node_modules\node-gyp\bin\node-gyp.js" rebuild \

Looks like it couldn't run an install script associated with the package. Any thoughts what could be causing this? Thanks.

Though I'm using the GNU bash that came with git, I have also tried through Windows Command Prompt with the same results.
