Which node version you installed ?

node version. 4.2.2. LTS

start Run command-> '%temp%'.

delete all the temp files in the temp folder.

Now upgrade the node and npm.

Try installing the ionic again using npm.

Thank you for your care , I tried this but it doesn’t work :frowning:
anyway i spend 3 days trying , and i went to Hayber V and i am installing Win 7 … Maybe it works
but i have a Q about VS 2015 community . it’s really 19 GB . i can’t believe that big !!!

Yes VS2015 is really that big.
And I’m running ionic on win 10 just fine so It shouldn’t cause problems. Your problem must be suthing else.

You don´t need Visual Studio to develop Ionic apps. There are a lot of alternatives like Atom, Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code (43Mb).

Thank you for reply . i do have sublime text " i like it " but i think VS 2015 it’s not for edit . it’s library .
Am i right ?
believe it or not , so a week now i didn’t start my project yet all this time try to create my development environment on my Windows PC :frowning: i am this close to fade up , So sad . all tuts using MAC

Wish me a good luck
