Simulator cannot find vs-tac in VirtualBox VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running VS on a Mac using VirtualBox VM in order to publish Cordova apps on Apple Store. I can no longer build and used documentation here to re-install vs-tac (https://taco.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/configure-vs-tools-apache-cordova/#vstac).

    I receive these errors when reinstalling vs-tac:

    When I try to build Cordova apps I get this error:

    Error installing local npm package.       Microsoft.MDA.Fil 285 eMirroring.targets


    throw err

    Error: BLD00401: Count find module 'C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\vs-tac\app.js' Please go to Tools --> Options --> Tools for Apache Clear Cordova Cache and try again

    Note that I have cleared the cache repeatedly but it did not have an effect.....
