I am trying to install ionic as npm install -g ionic but I am getting these errors.
Please help me.

npm on windows is a real pain! I had that problem several times on windows.
try to run a shell terminal as Administrator, it might solve the problem.
Even if you are an administrator user, you can have several npm problems which later totally mess up npm installation.

I’m having the same problem, and even running cmd as an administrator, the error still occurs. None of the solutions found in forums work. I am already desperate to solve this problem and can not find a solution anywhere. Do you know of any other solution to this problem?

Hi Varun ,

Install Node.js then Run the following npm code in node.js command prompt.
Hope this will help!

Happy Holidays! :slight_smile:
