I've followed instructions in tileserver-gl github page and successfully install tileservre-gl, I mean npm command finished without error and all packages were downloaded.

zurich_switzerland file is also downloaded.

But when according to instructions I run tileserver-gl zurich_switzerland.mbtiles it says:

command not found.

What's the problem?

I was too facing similar issue, ensure that the command to run is

npm install -g tileserver-gl-light don't forget the -g

Do ensure to start Command Prompt as Administrator (Run as Administrator)

once the installation is finished check your 'npm' folder (in Windows it should in C:\Users\Your-User-Name\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules) for a folder named 'tileserver-gl-light'
