Looks like #3529.

@muralip can you try running
npm explore npm -g -- pwd
It should output the path of your npm binary.


This actually looks like a path issue – that command is used by a few other packages to try to get at node-gyp without depending on it themselves, and it looks like the SQLite installer in AppJS is one of them. On Unix systems, this will work fine, but apparently on Windows with a default install, this fails because PATH / %path% isn't set up correctly. @muralip, this is actually an issue for the AppJS team, not us. npm is working as designed here.
