Btw , I do know the windows command line . That's not the issue .
But I did forget how to redirect all output to a file.
Ok , I'll try it again :

Perhaps you could help me with my Start-nodejs.bat setup .
Here is my Start-nodejs.bat file :

echo on > Nodejs-test01.txt 2>&1
rem comment Here is nodejs Foledr : C:\Program Files (x86)\NodeJS
rem comment Here is my Testing Folder : C:\pixi.js\bin\httppixijs.github.io
rem comment Here is my C:\pixi.js\bin\httppixijs.github.io\Start-nodejs.bat :

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\NodeJS
nodejs.exe
pause
node -v
pause
cd C:\pixi.js\bin\httppixijs.github.io
127.0.0.1:8080\C:\pixi.js\bin\httppixijs.github.io/truth02-WIP.html
pause

Thanks..

THIS needs to be executed one time:

`npm install -g http-server`

Bat file:

```rem opening browser
start http://127.0.0.1:8080/
rem starting server at the same time
rem no pause needed
http-server -c-1
```

From the

npm install -g http-server```

I get error  "npm should be run outside of the node repl, in your normal shell"

What shall I do next ?

Dont start it in powershell. Open your folder in explorer, "file"->"open command line here" , then type "node -v" , and it will show the version. If you dont know how to work with windows command line, you wont succeed with other web-servers too. Excuse me, but that stuff is one of basic things you have to know as a coder.

I responded to this yesterday .

Anyone know what happened to it ?

And here is the Post I responded to:

Ok , i got this thing going with 2 .bat files :

1) Start-node.exe.bat.bat
rem comment I am Start-node.exe.bat.bat
"Start-node.exe.bat">Nodejs-test01.txt 2>&1

2) Start-node.exe.bat
rem comment I am Start-node.exe.bat
rem comment Here is nodejs Foledr : C:\Program Files (x86)\NodeJS
rem comment Here is my Testing Folder : C:\pixi.js\bin\httppixijs.github.io
rem comment Here is my C:\pixi.js\bin\httppixijs.github.io\Start-node.exe.bat.bat :

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\NodeJS
node.exe

3) Nodejs-test01.txt (output log)

As you can see node.exe still doesn't like "-v" .

So , I
2) clicked Install
3) clicked on Brackets desktop icon , and Voila! .
Every thing works , including "Live Preview" .

So , I am done with Nodejs .
Thanks for your help though .

Now I can get back to PixiJs

You overcomplicated things. A lot. I dont even want to explain these things anymore. All commands I specified were for windows console, not nodejs. Nodejs I use only to get http-server installed.

I'm not sure how to break it to you but I'm afraid you are not done with Node  Not if you're using Brackets anyway.

Good luck to you

To me , That's kind of vague Matt .
But , I think you mean that Brackets uses Nodejs .
That's not a problem with me .  I have nothing against Nodejs .
The problem is , all the hastle involved getting Nodejs , by itself , up and running .
I am more of a freeware programmer (clipFind/ClipFind http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2333 ) .
And my BenghaziGame is more of a political satire than a game .
And I have a few more ideas for simple 2D shooter games along those lines .
So I don't want to spend much time on getting bogged down in the learning process .

Anyways , thanks ALL for your help .

Btw: For me , why does this Posting-Editor cause my Posts to use Double-spacing .
To get singleline-spacing , I have to write it in Notepad , then copy and paste it into the Posting-Editor .
Am I doing something wrong .
