Now, I have updated my node package, am getting another error log:
Can any one help me get this fixed.


npm install -g ionic?

I have done that, i get thesame issues

Thnaks for the reply, more help will be appreciated

Hmm, so lets try this, can you past in your node and npm version?
I believe there were some issues with node v0.12.0 for windows users.
I’d trying install 0.10.36 if possible.
Let me know if that helps

I have done as instructed but i still get thesame result

$ npm install -g cordova

Are you doing it as an admin? I always use an admin terminal in windows for this.

I get some help from stackoverflow
saying i should run npm cache clean first,
try npm install -g cordova
npm install -g cordova@3.6.3-0.2.13

Now this is the error am getting this if i run it with admin
C:>npm install -g cordova

But am not under any proxy

When i run the node cmd, under admin, i get this error

C:>npm install -g cordova
npm ERR! fetch failed
npm ERR! fetch failed

Is there any alternate way of getting cordova install

Thanks you all for your contribution.

Thank you all for your answer, i have had the issues resolve from all of your contribution. This are the step i followed.

npm cache clean
Bring back the node version to v0.10.36 as suggested that the latest version of node may not be compatible for the new cli for window users.
Run the node cli or cmd in admin mode
npm install -g cordova
Thank your all for your time and contribution


Fixed the issue for me as well. Thanks.
