I have Visual C++ 2010 with sdk 7.1. I uninstalled the x64 version of node I had and installed an x86 version. My python variable is set. Before I installed the x86 version the install would be mostly error free except for some yellow text during the middle of it that had to do with contextify not installing. I no longer get the yellow text but now I get a whole bunch more errors at the end which you can see in the pictures.
Can you post the actual searchable/quotable log file, not hard-to-read screenshots?
Is this still a problem for you?
Could you please upload your npm-debug.log as a gist http://gist.github.com? If possible, run npm with at least one -d flag to increase the logging level.
There have been a lot of improvements to npm -- especially around conflicts and race conditions during install -- since 1.3.17. Can you try updating your npm installation?

We are trying to clean up older npm issues, so if we don't hear back from you within a week, we will close this issue. (Don't worry -- you can always come back again and open a new issue!)
Closing as abandoned.
