Yeoman npm install fails on Windows

I am trying to install the Yeoman generator on my 64 bit Windows 10 machine using npm. It continuously fails with the following errors. I am running as administrator and have tried a number of different combinations of switches and am even running the latest version of Node (6.2.0). Any ideas?

Answer

Try to install the previous version:
