What is the solution ?


What is your ionic info output?


How can i get it in VS2017!

This is from the git with path to project


Ionic is not compatible with this Node version. Install the LTS as it says in the installation instructions.


After i read the lts again and run the following lines at GIT
npm install -g cordova ionic
npm install @ionic/app-scripts@latest --save-dev
ionic start myApp tabs

Is it Correct ?


Is that still true? The issue with Node 9 and npm was fixed just a day or two ago, with the new npm update (at least that’s what npm claims). I was thinking of upgrading to see if it works. Either way, it looks as though the OP didn’t pay attention to your advice


Thnx a lot it is working.


You can use Node 9.x with the latest Ionic app.-scripts release containing the latest node-sass release.


Isn’t the use doing exactly that?

Node 9.3.0, app-scripts 3.1.6, but error message is:

Error: Node Sass does not yet support your current environment: Windows 64-bit with Unsupported runtime (59)


Okay I never tested it on Windows. I will ping Dan
