Ionic run android - nothing happens

Hi all, I’ve searched a while for answers to my problem, but no luck so far.

I’m just getting started learning ionic and have run into a problem, I have got ionic set up on a windows 10 PC, and have installed Genymotion + VirtualBox to emulate Android devices.

I have a Genymotion emulator running, however when I run ionic run android nothing at all happens. No error messages even. There are no physical android devices connected to the PC. Appreciate any help! Some info below:

PS E:\WebDevelopment\ionic\firstproject> adb devices -l
List of devices attached    device product:vbox86p model:Samsung_Galaxy_S5___4_4_4___API_19___1080x1920_1 device:vbox86p

PS E:\WebDevelopment\ionic\firstproject> ionic info

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 5.3.3
Gulp version:  CLI version 3.9.0
Gulp local:
Ionic Version: 1.1.0
Ionic CLI Version: 1.7.8
Ionic App Lib Version: 0.6.4
Node Version: v5.0.0

What exactly is shown in the console when you ionic run android?

Don’t use Node 5.x, use Node 4.2.x this is the LTS release.


Thanks - that was it! Works with Node 4.2.2.
