#2

I’m having the same problem as well. I’ve tried renaming and even mannually installing cordova-lib but none of that seems to have worked either.


#3

Try running npm cache clean and reinstalling ionic


#4

Thanks, but no joy after that I still get the error.


#5

Completely uninstall ionic and cordova and then reinstall them again.


#6

Worked spot on thanks :slight_smile:
