Node Sass could not find a binding for your current environment: Windows 64-bit with Node.js 6.x

Recently I was opening a Angular2 application that was using the WebPack Sass loader to bundle the Sass files. Conveniently Visual Studio performs “npm install” to load all the npm packages.

When running “npm start” I got the following error:

Node Sass could not find a binding for your current environment: Windows 64-bit with Node.js 6.x

Found bindings for the following environments:
- Windows 32-bit with Node.js 5.x

This usually happens because your environment has changed since running `npm install`.
Run `npm rebuild node-sass` to build the binding for your current environment.

Somehow Visual Studio installed the wrong binaries for node-sass. The fix was quite simply – just run “npm rebuild node-sass” as stated in the error message.

Did anyone else experience the same behaviour?
