Unable to install nodemon Win 10?


Please help… I have an issue I am trying to work through the very good FFC youTube video entitled : Full Stack Web App using Vue.js & Express.js: Part 1 - Intro.

I am trying to install nodemon via npm.

I am getting the following error:

$ npm install -g nodemon

According to this thread,

Try turning off your anti-virus software.

If you are using any command-line interface programs like Command Prompt, Powershell, Git Bash or Cmder, then you have to open them with administrative priviliges and then run your command.

Right click and choose “Run as administrator”.

Hopefully, it will solve the problem.
