Node.js Question

Trying to install Angular 2 Material from npm - unrecognized token in source text

I try the following command from PowerShell (as Administrator)

npm install @angular2-material

and get the error:

Unrecognized token in source text.
At line:1 char:13
+ npm install <<<< @angular2-material
+ CategoryInfo : ParserError: (:) [], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : UnrecognizedToken

I've even tried getting just a single A2M component (core) and get the same error:

npm install @angular2-material/{core}

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

npm: 3.9.5

node: 6.2.2

OS: Win7


I found the following issue on A2M GitHub - seems like it might be an issue with PS.


Update 2:

Using cmd instead of PS works.
