TeamCity: PhantomJS have not captured in 60000 ms, killing

I'm encountering an issue when running tests in my CI environment. The configuration works fine on MacOS 10.11.6 (El Capitan), with Node v6.0.0 / npm 3.8.6, but on a TeamCity 9.1.6 agent running Windows with Node v4.2.2 / npm 2.14.7, it fails miserably with an error of

PhantomJS have not captured in 60000 ms
.

Here's an example stacktrace on TeamCity:

Here's a snippet of package.json:

And here's a snippet of karma.conf.js:

module.exports = function (config) {
'use strict';

config.set({
frameworks: ['jasmine'],
plugins: [
'karma-jasmine',
'karma-chrome-launcher',
'karma-firefox-launcher',
'karma-phantomjs-launcher'
],
files: [
<...>
],
exclude: [],
preprocessors: {

reporters: ['progress']
port: 9877,
runnerPort: 9101,
colors: true,
logLevel: config.LOG_DEBUG,
autoWatch: true,
browsers: ['PhantomJS'],
captureTimeout: 60000,
singleRun: true
});

Answer

Issue solved! In our CI environment, we aren't getting the node modules by running npm install - we are zipping the node_modules directory locally and adding it to our source code.

Zipping it on a Mac and exploding it on Windows and attempting to use those modules, especially phantomjs-prebuilt, is the reason why it wasn't capturing.

I zipped it from Windows instead and it worked perfectly.
