As a follow up - I restored from snapshot and re-installed to correct the issue.
Error when installing nodebb
Hello to all! Need your helps, try to install NodeBB , and get error, couple time try re-install all stuff - same error.
You'll need to have all the dependencies installed in advance before trying to pull the files from GitHub if you're going to do an install.
Have you tried this guide for Windows 8 installation? Keep in mind NodeBB isn't specifically tailored for Windows installation!
@julian yes i follow that guide, install all programs that there written, but still same error*( maybe i was mistake some....
I haven't used NodeBB on Windows 8, but it looks like npm is trying to run out of your AppData folder, while everything else has a solid location. Try running your terminal as an Admin, as it could have an access error with running out of AppData.
Just a guess, as I've had similar issues.
@Ted i have bad english, can you explain me easier? please
@naxxmare, before opening PowerShell, right-click on it, and select Run As Administrator. If a box pops up, click Yes.
This may solve the issue you are experiencing.
One of the NodeBB dependencies is running from a directory on your machine that has been known to require advanced permissions on Windows 8.
In the past I haven't been able to run anything in my AppData folder on my Windows 8 workstation, without using it as an admin.
I see you use Teamviewer. I could provide assistance via it if necessary.
edit: What is your primary language? I'll try to translate it if necessary.
@Ted primary russian , can you connect to my teamviewer and helps? i cant find this run from admin on right click....
my skype is ameronis, and teamviewer can give you
У меня нет Skype. Вы можете связаться со мной с чата на этом форуме.
@Ted maybe problem is in OS, this is win 8.1 , on win 8 nodebb runs perfect
@naxxmare, that is quite possible - though I'm not aware of any major changes in the two OS builds that would explain this issue.
@naxxmare, I had a similar issue this evening.
Navigate to %AppData% in Windows Explorer
Create a folder called npm
