do you have python and git installed?

Can you please upload the npm-debug.log file that it's generating?


I am getting the same. But the log is 75.3KB so I can't put it in here.

do you still have the issue, @naveenbytesflow?


Is this still a problem for you?

Could you please upload your npm-debug.log as a gist If possible, run npm with at least one -d flag to increase the logging level.

There have been a lot of improvements to npm -- especially around conflicts and race conditions during install -- since 1.3.11. Can you try updating your npm installation?

To update npm on Windows, follow the instructions here:

We are trying to clean up older npm issues, so if we don't hear back from you within a week, we will close this issue. (Don't worry -- you can always come back again and open a new issue!)
