There is no mention that Python is required to install bcrypt.

Not sure if this is just for windows and which version is required but I installed Python 2.7.3 and got past the error that the installer could not find python. Is 2.7.3 the correct version or should I have python 3.x?

Also, to get this to build on Windows you need to have the visual studio cl.exe compiler available. If you did not check the options for c# and c++ when installing visual studio this compiler wont exist and you will get an error.

Once I added those options from the installer for VS2010 I reinstall vs 2008 c++ redistributables to be safe and ran npm install bcrypt from msysgit (MINGW32) and it installed successfully.
