Welcome to the forum @LuisF

That is a good version of node.js (16.18.0) but with that version of nodejs, npm should be version 8.15 or similar. I don't use Windows so don't know the fix, but I suggest that you start with the node red docs Installing on Windows and see what it says about installing node.js and npm.

Not sure why that would get out of step since a Windows install of node.js will install the appropriate npm. I guess it might be possible that you have an old version of npm hanging around somewhere that is being picked up?

If you are using PowerShell, you should be able to do whereis npm just like on Linux (if using CMD, then it is where npm):


If you get anything different to that, please share.
