I need to get started coding an Angular 2 application at my workplace but I get the following error in VS:
====Executing command 'npm install'====
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The system cannot find the file specified
at System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithCreateProcess(ProcessStartInfo startInfo)
at Microsoft.VisualStudioTools.Project.ProcessOutput..ctor(Process process, Redirector redirector)
Error executing npm - unable to start the npm process
Error - Cannot load global packages.
I finally found out the reason.. nodeJS was installed with the x86 installer on a x64 computer. Installed nodeJS in 64 bit and it resolved my issue.
Hope this help anyone who has this error.
