Error about fdk in window

Hello, Good day!

I try to develop freshdesk custom app.

I installed nvm and set node version 10.18.0.
And I installed fdk to “npm install -g”.

But fdk command like"fdk version" is not working.
Only occurred error index.js.
"Error: Cannot find module ‘C:\Users\blue_\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\fdk\index.js’

Could you please help me?

Hi @Juyeong_Lee,

This could happen due to incompletion of installation or path variable not being added properly, I guess from the error.
Could you try to check if the FDK folder exists under the node_modules in the mentioned path (C:\Users\blue_\AppData\Roaming\npm)?
Also, could you check if the NPM folder is properly added to the PATH environment variable?

Could you share the complete log of the installation session in the terminal or the complete error with stack trace from the terminal?

Adding on to what @Raviraj has shared, if you intend to start afresh see the uninstallation steps in this wiki article,

Hi @Raviraj

Thank you for your reply.

There no FDK folder.
NPM folder is already added to the PATH environment variable.

Error message is below.
Error: Cannot find module ‘C:\Users\blue_\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\fdk\index.js’

Why fdk folder not exists?
I didn’t delete fdk folder.
And I reinstall with command “npm install -g”, but FDK folder didn’t created.

Hi, @Saif

Thank you for information.

But “npm uninstall fdk -g” is not working.
I need to find another way.

Thank you.

I think this issue involved this,

When install fdk, also show this messages:

npm WARN deprecated npm i nyc
npm WARN deprecated Visit for other alternatives.

npm WARN ajv-keywords@3.5.2 requires a peer of ajv@^6.9.1 but none is installed. You must install peer dependencies yourself.

I solve this issu!!

FDK must install this command.
npm install -g --unsafe-perm=true

Then FDK working!!
