Menu icon Foundation
NPM not working. Cannot find module 'ini'

Hello people,

I'm having a problem setting up and compiling any foundation project with NPM (or any other project, for that matter).

When I install, I get this message:

There were some problems during the installation.

 ✓ New project folder created.
 ✗ Node modules not installed. Try running npm install manually.
 ✓ Bower components installed.

Once you've resolved the above issues, run foundation watch while inside the badth folder.

But when I run npm install, I get this:

module.js:549
    throw err;
    ^

Error: Cannot find module 'ini'
    at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:547:15)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:474:25)
    at Module.require (module.js:596:17)
    at require (internal/module.js:11:18)
    at Object.<anonymous> (C:\Users\Alex\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\npm\node_modules\config-chain\index.js:4:11)

    at Module.load (module.js:565:32)
    at tryModuleLoad (module.js:505:12)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:497:3)

 

I feel at my wits end, as I feel I've tried everything to no avail!  Can anybody please help?

Did you try installing the ini module into your project?

Which npm and Node.js versions do you use? Did you try to disable your antivirus and try to use an elevated console?

Thank you Daniel - this worked (I had to run in an elevated console)!
