npm ERR! Make sure you have the latest version of node.js and npm installed.
npm ERR! If you do, this is most likely a problem with the central package,
npm ERR! not with npm itself.
npm ERR! Tell the author that this fails on your system:
npm ERR! node ./bin/www

It works great on PC... The command script is

SET html=../../com.view.html&& npm start

I have the same error when running npm start
