Debugging ionic app in Visual Studio is impossible

Whenever I try to debug my ionic app using visual studio with apache tools I keep getting the same error over and over anyone knows if this is an issue with node.js 5.2.0 which is what I am running, do I need an earlier version of node?.

You should avoid npm 3, so many issues, especially on Windows, prefer npm 2.x
Same thing for Node, you’re using 5.2.x, prefer LTS version (Long Term Support) 4.2.x

So my advice is downgrade and possibly use a node version manager like nodist but I don’t use Visual Studio so maybe you have constraints I don’t have.
