npm is a part of node.js, you find the installer on
https://nodejs.org/en/download/current/. I tried on Windows 7 and the
installation  reported a conflict with Acrobat Reader DC. It said that it
will unintall AR and it will have to be installed manually again. I
confirmed, installation of node.js was completed and Acrobat Reader DC
still worked.
