What is your environment? Please show the output of ionic info

OS :Windows -8
ionic info

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: Not installed
Ionic Version: 1.2.1
Ionic CLI Version: 1.7.12
Ionic App Lib Version: 0.6.5
OS: Windows 8.1
Node Version: v5.3.0

Dependency warning - for the CLI to run correctly,
it is highly suggested to install/upgrade the following:

Please install your Cordova CLI to version >=4.2.0 npm install -g cordova

So did you try what the error message suggested? npm install -g cordova

By the way, prefer the LTS (Long Term Support) releases of node rather than so-called stable one 5.3.x.

Same here.

Take a look to the output of ionic info : Cordova CLI: Not installed. Cordova seems to be not installed even after running npm install -g cordova.

I managed to make it work by installing the previous version of cordova (5.4.0 instead of 5.4.1).

Hope it helps.
