Not able to start ionic


I am trying to setup ionic for the first time on my machine, after I install it I try to run ionic and it runs me into this error

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, mkdir 'C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents.ionic’
at Error (native)
at Object.fs.mkdirSync (fs.js:842:18)
at new IonicStore (C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\ionic\lib\ionic\store.js:20:8)

at Module.require (module.js:354:17)
at require (internal/module.js:12:17)

Whereas there is no directory C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents on my pc.

I am not able to find any online resource for it, can you please help?

My advice, remove everything, including nodeJS and follow this tutorial:

Most important step is INSTALL IONIC && CORDOVA. It will show you how to manually set Ionic/Cordova installation folder.
