Latest version of windows updating

26 Sep

If you are on a corporate network, contact your administrator if you are concerned about updating your computer.

If you are running an illegal copy of Microsoft Windows, we recommend you purchase a valid copy of Microsoft Windows to download updates.

thought I would mention, as the question itself is for updating node and npm, that to get both updated I had to uninstall / reinstall node, and run this upgrader as well (not sure if the node installer would have done it by itself as I did the upgrader first)Note 32 and 64 bit MSIs.

Do not just click on "Windows Installer" link - that's 32 bit.

If you are running Microsoft Windows 98 or later, at least some updates should be available for your computer.

Below are steps on how to perform these updates, as well as additional recommendations to help update your computer.

If you want to download the standalone files, though, read on.

As always, we have to preface this with the usual disclaimer: Downloading Windows updates using unconventional methods is risky.

If you have more than 1 user on the machine, you just broke NPM for everybody else.

This method also causes problems with global packages.
