Could not load the "sharp" module using the win32-x64 runtime

When using the node.js sharp library on Windows and you encounter this error while trying run your app.


npm install --force @img/sharp-win32-x64

It's worth noting that using --force should be done cautiously. It might be necessary in some situations, but it can potentially lead to problems if there are compatibility issues or conflicts between packages.

It's usually better to understand and resolve the root cause of any installation issues rather than relying on the --force flag.
