upgrade framework issues
by Matthew Williams - Thursday, 9 February 2017, 1:42 PM

Hi there

I can't get my Authoring tool to start (just shows logo and "loading" dots. I think I need to upgrade everything, which I attempted using node upgrade.js - it seems to almost upgrade the authoring tool, but then generates a number of errors in the terminal window. See below. I'm thinking I have an issue with dependencies. 

Could someone help me figure out where the issue is?

(I have attached error log referred to in the terminal code)

Many thanks
