I have gotten almost all the way through the install process - but I am getting this error and I do not know how to proceed.


Error: Cannot find module 'fs-extra'

Any help most appreciated.

Hey Eric, 


from the error message I can see that module 'fs-extra' is not installed, have you installed related npm packages? you can try to run "npm install" to install the related npm packages.

When posting to the forums please could you be clear whether your question relates to the authoring tool or framework and please list versions where appropriate.

It's also useful to know what platform you're on (Windows/Mac/*nix), what you've tried so far, what instructions you're following etc.

For example, one of those most common problems people run into in the installation process is to use the wrong version of NodeJS - but if you don't tell us what version you have installed we can't check if that's the case.
