Hello. The issue you have encountered is because of the following.

PS C:\Users\ondo\Desktop\kalco> npx create-react-app ./

Instead of a ./ , it is supposed to be the name of your application e.g my-app. What you provided was a special reserved symbol that represents the current directory.

The error looks to be related to it not finding npm in AppData\Roaming\npm

Did you install Node.js?

If you did, maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling it. You can also use nvm-windows


./will use the name of the folder the command is executed in. You can also just use .

npx create-react-app ./

 "name": "test"
