I'm trying to setup an environment for a Node.js app. but I'm getting this error:

"NODE_ENV" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable command or batch file.

What does this mean and how can I solve this problem?

I'm using Windows and also tried set NODE_ENV=development.

Hello @kartik,

It sounds like your error comes from an attempt to run something like this (which works in Linux)

NODE_ENV=development node foo.js

the equivalent in Windows would be

SET NODE_ENV=development
node foo.js

running in the same command shell.

Hope it is helpfull!!
Thank you!!
