I've got problem with bcrypt on Windows 8 machine.

Compilation runs well, but whenever I try to use bcrypt, script crashes with Error: no error. I'm attaching two screenshots. First output of compilation (npm install, and second output of npm test).

I think there is a build error. The last line of the warnings looks possibly suspicious to me. My recommendation? Stop using windows ;)

medikoo commented Mar 1, 2013

@shtylman that's a childish recommendation, you can't ask millions of people to stop using Windows, just because you have bad opinion about it ;-)

For this project I definitely need Windows support, and that's not a solution.

@medikoo Can you put together a small code sample that replicates the behavior and share that code with us. From the line numbers it appears as if that is coming from calling bindings.encrypt_sync(). So, use bcrypt.encrypt_sync() in your example please (or any others if you find them to also produce the same result).

medikoo commented Mar 1, 2013

@ncb000gt it fails right at require('bcrypt'). I'm not able to try any specific function

ncb000gt commented Mar 1, 2013

I see you're using 0.7.3 of the module (there should be an upgrade for that). Also, which version of node are you using? It may be in there but I didn't see it.

medikoo commented Mar 1, 2013

@ncb000gt sorry, indeed it was outdated. I've updated it to v0.7.4 and it's same error. We're using latest version of Node (v.0.8.21)

How was node installed? The download binary or built from source?

Also, if you can open up access to a windows machine then we may be able to
help resolve this. Windows 8 is not some free software I can just download
to help you fix this :)

Node was installed regular way (using official binary).

It's on computer of my colleague, so I'll ask him about possible access, but it'll be possible Monday earliest. I let you know then.

On other Windows 8 machine I've installed bcrypt without issues. The only difference I know between both systems, is that one that has this issue is French language version (not sure if it makes any real difference).

TooTallNate commented Mar 2, 2013

"Error: No error" coming from the .node native require call... hm.. that is strange... it could possibly be a bug in the libuv dynamic loader. Pinging @piscisaureus / @sblom.

medikoo commented Mar 4, 2013

@TooTallNate @piscisaureus We've checked also v0.9 Node branch and got exactly same error. If you'd like to get some more information, please let us know what you need, and I'll do my best.

I confirm that we can also setup a TeamViewer session with direct access to the machine if that can help.

I remember having heard of this problem before, and iirc it was caused by loading a module compiled for x64 by the x86 variant of node. My first suggestion would be to verify that the architectures of node.exe and bcrypt.node match.

That said, the error is a bit odd. If you have compiled node from source you could try setting breakpoints in uv_dlopen and uv_dlsym and figure out what the error is that windows reports.

medikoo commented Mar 4, 2013

@piscisaureus this can't be the case, as we're doing npm test right after npm rebuild in the same command shell window. So we're definitely using same variant of node for both compilation and loading the module afterwards.

I don't have any experience with compilation of Node on Windows. We're installing node using msi binaries as they're provided at nodejs.org, and I'm totally not familiar w C++, but if you guide us, in few simple steps, how we should set such breakpoints and compile, we can do that, and post the log.

Collaborator

defunctzombie commented Mar 4, 2013

You could have still install the wrong architecture for node.exe. The build
would be separate from that but then fail to run. So the fact that you run
npm test after npm install doesn't say anything about the arch of the exe
installed.

@shtylman it's a 64-bit system and there's x64 Node.js installed

My first suggestion would be to verify that the architectures of node.exe and bcrypt.node match.

You did that?

medikoo commented Mar 4, 2013

@piscisaureus As I mentioned, we've run npm test right after npm rebuild, and we didn't reinstall node in between. So error is thrown by exactly same node that compiled the module.

According to version of Node we're using, if nodejs.org website hosts x64 versions under x64 links, then it's definitely that. We've done additional sanity check:

node -e "console.log(process.arch, require('os').arch())"
x64 x64

We can also do some extra sanity check on bcrypt.node, but I'm not sure how I can check architecture of that, let me know the method, and we'll apply it.

Node does not compile the module. It is compiled by gyp which is a python script. So it is still possible for the build arch to not match.

Ok, so node is x64, but still need to verify the bcrypt.node file.

Use dumpbin /headers <filename> and look for the machine header which should be one of the first.
You can use dumpbin from the visual studio command prompt.

@piscisaureus Any ideas from the latest info @medikoo provided?

I tried really hard to reproduce this error but to no avail, so I have no clue what's going on. I'm pretty sure LoadLibrary("path/to/bcrypt_lib.node") is failing but apparently it doesn't set the GetLastError() return value to something useful.

medikoo commented Mar 22, 2013

I'll try next week with Node v0.10.1 and bcrypt v0.7.5 and let you know if anything changed.

@piscisaureus If in any way I can provide more specific logs to you, let me know, and I'll do my best.

Error message problem: "Error: no error" (Windows) #5254

medikoo commented Apr 8, 2013

@ncb000gt it's on machine of one of my colleagues. I've already contacted him, I'll do my best to provide some feedback tomorrow.

Anyway whatever the error cause, it'll be great if error message would be fixed on Node's side. Lack of any information in that is the main cause of why we're just guessing (I've also opened the issue for that)

medikoo commented Apr 9, 2013

We've tried Today, on same Windows 8 machine, bcrypt v0.7.5 and Node v0.10.3 and still there's Error: no error issue.

I'll be happy to provide more feedback, just let us know what you need.

It is not a node problem nor an bcrypt. There is still something missing i guess. I had the same problem on trying to run a node project on Windows 7, but 32bit. The problem was caused by a missing dependency for node-gyp, which in turn is a dependency of bcrypt.
https://github.com/ncb000gt/node.bcrypt.js/#dependencies --> https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp/#installation
There they say:
"For 64-bit builds of node and native modules you will also need the Windows 7 64-bit SDK"
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279
So i installed it, and now it works :)
Hope it will solve your problem as well

bcrypt is a native module which must be compiled, which requires the OpenSSL SDK during compilation and which requires some OpenSSL library files during runtime. On Linux that usually is no problem, on Windows that usually is a mess.

Regarding Windows: Find the correct version of the file "libeay32.dll" (from the OpenSSL SDK you compiled brcrypt with) and copy it right next to the file "bcrypt_lib.node". It should be located in "node_modules\bcrypt\build\Release".

Alternatively make sure that "libeay32.dll" is somewhere where Windows is automatically looking for DLL files. As far as I remember the OpenSSL SDK installer for Windows from http://slproweb.com/ has an option during installation to set the %PATH% correctly.

Thank you, thats work for me :)

It seems like an environment or other windows related nonsense going on. Given there is no action on our part (based on what I have read) I a closing the issue.

It probably would save some Windows users of bcrypt.js the same troubles if the "Dependencies" section of the "README.md" says something like the following:

Make sure that Windows finds the appropriate DLL file during runtime of bcrypt.js: Either add C:\OpenSSL-Win32 to the PATH variable or copy the file "libeay32.dll" from the OpenSSL SDK brcrypt.js was compiled with with right next to the file "bcrypt_lib.node" located in "node_modules\bcrypt\build\Release".

coldice commented May 18, 2013

I'm having exactly the same problem, and unfortunately I was unable to resolve it with the given solutions. I'm running on Windows 7 64 bit. Im trying to compile bcrypt 0.7.5 with node 0.10.2 and node-gyp 0.9.3. I was able to compile bcrypt with multiple different setups, however I cannot get it running, as its always throwing "error: no error". I have installed:

MSVS 2008 (Prof), 2010 (Express), 2012 (Express)
Windows SDK 6.0A, Windows SDK 7.1
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Compiler Update for the Windows SDK 7.1 (KB2519277)

Python 2.7.3
OpenSSL "Win32OpenSSL-1_0_1e" with setting up PATH (is this the correct version?)

So I tried to compile with VS 2008, 2010 and 2012, which all ran fine after installing openssl with proper path settings. I can only see those warnings as shown in the first screens, about v8::Persistent::New not defined. After I installed VS 2012, I was only able to compile with the msvs_version=2012 flag, otherwise it throws:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Platforms\x64\Microsoft.Cpp.x64.Targets(514,5): error MSB8008: Specified platform toolset (v110) is not installed or invalid. Please make sure that a supported PlatformToolset value is selected.

I also checked the header machine type, they are all 64bit. Is there anything else I could check on the toolchain or on the module startup? I have not compiled node, so I cannot set breakpoints as suggested before, but if there's no other way I'll try that. Also, I have to mention, as I'm running on Windows, the whole installation might have gotten corrupt somehow, as the whole toolchain is crippled with setup bugs (deinstall this to install that, afterwards install this..)

https://code.google.com/p/openssl-for-windows/downloads/detail?name=openssl-0.9.8k_X64.zip

Theres 64 bit openssl. Copy the include folder to
Visual studio include, like C:\program files\visual studio 6\vc\include

Then extract all to C:\OpenSSL-Win64

That's what finally worked for me
