Node.JS Configuration not working for Node.js


I am trying to install next.jsand the initial setup itself fails

Things I have done:

I have reinstalled Node.js and Gitbash terminal on windows

I have installed npm and yarn

I have tried to ensure all paths are located through windows environmental variables(using edit and new)

I have disabled antivirus

I have done permission checking as administrator

I have also reviewed the logs to try to understand. All paths and configurations seems okay at my end and commands should be working, however I seem to get this error happening, not only in this scenario but multiple scenarios.

peema@DESKTOP-6UGCO8V MINGW64 ~/Documents/blockchaincenter

$ npx create-next-app@latest

npm ERR! code ENOENT npm ERR! syscall spawn C:\Users\peema\AppData npm ERR!

path C:\Users\peema\Documents\blockchaincenter npm ERR! errno -4058 npm ERR!

enoent spawn C:\Users\peema\AppData ENOENT npm ERR! enoent

This is related to npm not being able to find a file. npm ERR!

enoent npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in: C:\Users\peema\AppData\Local\npm-cache\_ logs\2023-07-08T10_27_19_028Z-debug-0.log
The error you're encountering seems to indicate a problem with the create-next-app command not being able to find the necessary files. There could be a few reasons for this issue. Here are a few suggestions to help troubleshoot and resolve the problem:

1. Check Node.js and npm versions: Ensure that you have the latest stable versions of Node.js and npm installed. You can check the installed versions by running the following commands in your terminal:
- node -v to check the Node.js version
- npm -v to check the npm version

If you don't have the latest versions, you can update them by downloading and installing the latest Node.js package from the official website (Node.js).

2. Clear npm cache: Sometimes, issues can arise due to conflicts or corruption in the npm cache. Clearing the cache can help resolve such problems. Run the following command to clear the npm cache:

npm cache clean --force

3. Use yarn instead of npm: Instead of using npx create-next-app, you can try using yarn create next-app to create a new Next.js application. Ensure that you have Yarn installed (npm install -g yarn) and then run the following command:

yarn create next-app

4. Check file permissions: Make sure that you have the necessary permissions to create files and folders in the specified directory (C:\Users\peema\Documents\blockchaincenter). You can try running the terminal as an administrator to ensure that you have the required permissions.

5. Disable antivirus: Some antivirus programs can interfere with the installation process. Temporarily disable your antivirus software and try running the create-next-app command again to see if it resolves the issue.

If none of these steps resolve the problem, it would be helpful to see the full log file mentioned in the error message (C:\Users\peema\AppData\Local\npm-cache\_logs\2023-07-08T10_27_19_028Z-debug-0.log). Please review the log file and look for any additional error messages or stack traces that might provide further insight into the issue.
