I also have this issue, although it is failing on mkdir of a username with a space in it, that is not on my computer. Is this a config setting I should change (maybe it somehow mixed up user config that I had on an old computer)?

Fixed
Did a search for .npmrc file, and changed prefix= to the correct user.

I think you should excute this command on administrator "npm config set prefix path/to/Actual_npm_folder"

Am I reading this right, that there's a fix (#138) but until it gets merged, npx doesn't work on Windows (if my profile dir has a space in it)? Bummer, I just found out about npx today and got all excited to stop typing ./node_modules/.bin so much...

I was also facing the same problem while following react tutorials. Following steps worked for me
I changed all the defaults path of node and npm from C:\Users\ {user name} to some other drive.

  1. Installed the node to some other drive.
  2. Moved npm to some other location(say D:\npm)
  3. Changed the paths of npm from PATH env variable
  4. Changed the paths of npm-cache, .global_variables, .npmrc to (D:\npm) using npm config set {command} = {path}
    This will override the existing settings and set the new ones.

After this I ran the npx command shown in tutorial, and it worked.

Hope this helps.

My user name was "C:\Users\Carolina Maciel" i used:

1º)cmd /c mklink /J "C:\Users\myname" "C:\Users\My Name"
2º) npm config set cache C:\Users\myname\AppData\Roaming\npm-cache
3º) npm config set prefix C:\Users\myname\AppData\Roaming\npm

if not work, use:
npm cache clean --force

Worked for me, hope helps for u!

I was able to fix this in Windows by creating a directory junction to my users folder that didn't have a space in it. You can run a command like this in an administrative powershell:

cmd /c mklink /J "C:\Users\myname" "C:\Users\My Name"

You can then use this junction as if it were your real user directory:

npm config set cache C:\Users\myname\AppData\Roaming\npm-cache
npm config set prefix C:\Users\myname\AppData\Roaming\npm

(the above should update your user .npmrc file)

Life Saver.. Love you man

I'm searching for like an hour and finally, you made it nicely, thank you so much

Heres is my solution:
npm install -g create-react-app
npx create-react-app my-app
cd my-app
npm start
the only thing i think about is making sure npx is up to date.

This worked for me as well (still having space in my username on Windows 10)

Same issue

It's a escape error, this escape for / path works for me: "\/"

platform is win10

Escaping the slash this way worked for me. Thank you very much. I'm also on windows 10. I do not have a space in my user name.

This problem started for me after calling this:
npm config -g set cafile

After the above I tried calling this and then I saw the error:

npm config -g set cafile C:\Users\XXXXXXXX\git-certs\cert_XXXXXXXX.pem

This line in my .npmrc file fixed it for me:
cafile="C:\/Users\/XXXXXXXXX\/git-certs\/cert_XXXXXXX.pem"

You need to change the cache to a location without spaces.

Thank you my lord! Saved a day of headaches!
