    We don't support or test on Node.js version 8 and there could very well be issues using npm@5 as well. I suggest dropping to Node.js versions 4-7

    Can do. I simply updated to current as I always do when I update.

    It was on 7.5 prior.



  • Node.js v7.10.0 works perfectly.



  • @PitaJ Permissions on here are odd for the ask as question plugin. I can only mark my own posts as an answer.

    0_1496172652106_794451b1-bbd7-4053-852f-93e0e3b788bc-image.png



  • @PitaJ : I don't think that not supporting Node 8 is an option in the long term as it will be the new LTS release of Node.js

    Anyway, this error is located in the daemon package and is easily fixed.
    I've created a Pull Request for that issue, and if it is accepted, we'll just have to update the dependencie version of that package in package.json
