Node.js - Windows 7 Install - CXX Error

While attempting to install Node.js on a Windows 7 box for development I came upon this error using the install directions at
"wscript:173 error: could not configure a cxx compile"

Steps to fix:
"exit" cygwin
Run As Administration: C:\cygwin\bin\ash.exe
$ /bin/rebaseall -v

exit ash.
Reopen cygwin.
cd node

That should fix it.
