Cannot find name 'Promise' after updating to RC.0

After updating to RC.0 when trying to run ionic serve I have got hundreds of errors like this:

node_modules/ionic-native/dist/plugins/dbmeter.d.ts(50,22): error TS2304: Cannot find name ‘Promise’.

I did upgrade to RC.0 modifying your existing project.

Did you updated typescript to version 2?

@grabtasker solved it like this

No, I didn’t. Thanks for your reply:) My project doesn’t work anyway, but some problems gone.

I’ve got the same problem, cannot find Promise, since updating to RC0.

I’ve tried npm install -g typescript but that has no effect.

What did you do specifically to solve this?

Please post the answer here as to help others:


I had the same problem, but after updating my Visual Studio Code settings to work with TypeScript 2.0 all was good.

Yes. Updating VS code worked for me!
