Not able to create project in ionic 6.9.2

Hi Guys,

I am not able to create project through ionic cli, i am getting below error

ionic start test tabs

Pick a framework! :grin:

Please select the JavaScript framework to use for your new app. To bypass this prompt next time, supply a value for the
โ€“type option.

? Framework: Angular
:heavy_check_mark: Preparing directory ./test - done!
:heavy_check_mark: Downloading and extracting tabs starter - done!
? Integrate your new app with Capacitor to target native iOS and Android? No

Installing dependencies may take several minutes.

Nevermind. My solution was to remove the npm & npm-cache folders in my AppData/Roaming folder, uninstall Node, install it again, install @angular/cli @ionic/cli cordova-res and voilรก, everything worked.

Try to do that @johnmobiledev, it may help.
