"Can't find Python executable" when I tried to install an angular 2 application.

Dear experts here, I am learning angular 2 these days. When I tied to run "npm install" on an angular 2 application for displaying a slider document, it threw me into an error about python. I have two versions of python installed, how could I set up %PYTHON% PARAMETER?

THANKS.
