Socket.io installation on Win 7 fails

Socket.io installation on Win 7 fails

Problem

I've installed NodeJs and tried to install Socket.io

Socket.io installation fails consecutively. I've tried several differend NodeJS versions (0.6.15,0.6.16,0.6.17,0.7.8). All fail to install socket.io.

The full log can be found on pastebin.

Console log is:
