I have successfully installed the bitnami-meanstack-3.2.8-2-windows-installer on Windows 8.1.
When I attempt to install express with this command:
npm install forever -g
...I receive the error message:
npm WARN deprecated email@example.com: Please update to minimatch 3.0.2 or higher to avoid a RegExp DoS issue
However, when I checked the version of minimatch I'm using with this command:
npm -v minimatch
So, I do have a compatible version of minimatch installed, but npm cannot see it.
Also, at the end of the npm installation of express, it reports:
npm WARN optional Skipping failed optional dependency /forever/chokodar/fssevents:
npm WARN notsup Not compatible with your operating systes or architecture: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please advise. Many thanks.
