Hello everyone!

This is my first time on NodeRed and I've been carefully following the documentation on installing nodes etc. Additionally, when I was installing node-red itself, I opted to automatically install the additional packages (Python, Visual Studio, etc), which I'm assuming was successful since I see Python 3.10.2 installed on my machine (Windows 10). I then installed some other packages as well by using the Manage Palette option as many users suggested.

However, I cannot seem to install the Arduino node, and I really don't understand how I can fix this. Here is there entire log of the failed installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Use the Visual Studio Installer to get the Desktop development with C++ workload in one of the Visual Studio versions you have installed in your machine:

and run this in cmd:

npm config set msvs_version 2017

Make sure the version number matches if it's different
