Errors when I try to install the Sequelize CLI

I tried installing the Sequelize CLI in the Windows Command Prompt and got the following errors:

npm ERR! code EBADPLATFORM npm ERR! notsup Unsupported platform for inotify@1.4.6: wanted {"os":"linux","arch":"any"} (current: {"os":"win32","arch":"x64"}) npm ERR! notsup Valid OS: linux npm ERR! notsup Valid Arch: any npm ERR! notsup Actual OS: win32 npm ERR! notsup Actual Arch: x64

Will this not work in Windows?

I'm not sure about your error message but I was able to install on Windows 10 with npm version 6.13.4

I first installed sequelize

C:\WINDOWS\system32>npm install --save sequelize

+ sequelize@5.21.3
added 21 packages from 91 contributors and audited 22 packages in 5.266s
found 0 vulnerabilities

Then installed sequelize-cli

C:\WINDOWS\system32>npm install --save-dev sequelize-cli

+ sequelize-cli@5.5.1
added 82 packages from 42 contributors and audited 348 packages in 8.109s

3 packages are looking for funding
  run `npm fund` for details

found 0 vulnerabilities

Then ran

C:\WINDOWS\system32>npx sequelize --help
