I am still getting the same error if I open cmd from admin and executing ionic serve

This error is thrown when I type ionic serve

Have you tried turning off firewall for it?

Yes and it is still giving same error

This problem has started when I removed Firefox and installed chrome

This issue is now resolved after installing Firefox and setting it as default. But my concern is why it doesn’t work for chrome?

when i tried to do as you said. i got like this

do you have anymore options?

can you try these steps to create new project

$ ionic start MyTestApp blank

$ cd MyTestApp

$ ionic serve

can you try these three steps and let me know
