I am trying to install node version 10.3.0 in both the windows and linux image however the following fails on the linux image with "Install-Product : The term 'Install-Product' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program."

  - Ubuntu
  - Visual Studio 2017

# Test against the latest version of this Node.js version
  nodejs_version: "10.3.0"

# Install scripts. (runs after repo cloning)
  # Get the latest stable version of Node.js or io.js
  - ps: Install-Product node $env:nodejs_version

How can I install a specific version of node in bother images

    Sorry for confusion. Install-Product is for Windows only. For Ubuntu please use nvm or our new language stack construct. To run different configurations for Linux and Windows side-by-side, please check this part of doc.

    For example, this is one of the options to express this in YAML, for me it is quite simple and compact:

    - Visual Studio 2017
    - Ubuntu
      nodejs_version: 10.3.0
    - cmd: powershell Install-Product node $env:nodejs_version
    - sh: nvm install $nodejs_version
