I'm trying to install the authoring tool on a Windows 7 Enterprise laptop. I tried installing using directions at https://github.com/adaptlearning/adapt_authoring/wiki/Install-on-Server but got errors so I tried installing again (after uninstalling everything) using directions at https://github.com/adaptlearning/adapt_authoring/wiki/Install-Pre-requisites-on-Windows-Systems. This one was a bit different in terms of the steps but returned the same results. Errors captured in npm-debug.log which I have attached for reference. Not sure where I'm going wrong. It seems everything works fine until the very last step of installing adapt-cli. I'm getting all the pre-requisite programs from links so I'd assume they are the latest despite what the log is implying.
try the steps from this posting: https://community.adaptlearning.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=1769&parent=8063
If I read your log correct, at the end it complains about the lifecycle scripts. I had a similar experience, and for me the legacy usage solved my problem (be it on Ubuntu)
Unfortunately there weren't any parallels with their issues that I could see, but that may be my lack of Ubuntu knowledge and the commands that go along with a Linux install. However, I did manage to get it working. Turns out I missed the note about making sure I was running Node vs 4.2.2. Since I installed the latest of everything I thought I was good, but I had to use Nodist to downgrade Node to 4.2.2. Once I did that it worked.
