Cannot install bcrypt, seems python2 hasn't installed. Windows 7

I have python3 isnstalled on my machine. Environment variables setup and I can run npm commands on it.

But I also have python2 files on my system as I try to install bcrypt but it seems that this hasn't worked and python2 isn't installed.

I have the environment variables for Windows 7, python2 set up but I'm baffled as to what to do next.

Helllllp :) Thanks

Bcrypt depends on a version of python between v2.5.0 < 3.0.0 At the time of recording the video.

My version of Python of 3.5.1 on my local machine is Workspaces is 3.5.0 both recorded on 5th May 2016

On Workspaces, I managed a clean install of bycrypt

On my local machine I managed a clean install of express. So the problem seems to be with bcrypt and not with npm
