Issues with node
by James Wan - Tuesday, 19 January 2021, 4:08 PM


I have had to rebuild my computer and have copied the instance of adapt that i was running on my previous build.

I have installed node v4.4.7. However, when I try to run npm install -g grunt-cli I get the error detailed below. Has anyone encountered this before? (versions are: Authoring Tool v0.3.0 and Framework v2.2.2).


C:\>npm install -g grunt-cli

Are you behind a proxy?

Try googling the error message e.g. https://www.google.com/search?q=%22npm+ERR%21+network+tunneling+socket+could+not+be+established%22
